From the Author: Chris Sklar
"As a Certified Landscape Designer and Master Gardener located in Sherwood Park, Alberta, I find our winters are long, cold and bleak. At last, this full color coffee-table style book of amazing photos, designed and arranged in plant color palettes, introduces the reader to the array of plant life possible in the Zone 3 and up regions.
I truly want to inspire the Prairie, Central and Northern Gardeners to look forward to the warmer growing season. We really do have a spectacular array of plant material from which to choose.
My hope is that the brilliant color photography and matching color palettes will inspire you! The detail shown in the close up photography reveals nature's wondrous creation, and we often miss these details if we don't 'get up close and personal' with our plant material."
