Presents authoritative information on selecting, planting, maintaining, and propagating a wide selection of plants that can and should be used as groundcovers. While the author, a respected commercial grower of groundcovers, treats the usual suspects (vinca, ivy, pachysandra, viola), he also discusses plants such as smaller rhododendrons, vines, hellebores, or grasses that can work equally well. Of special interest are chapters on selecting the right plant for various terrains and an extensive groundcover selection chart. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.

This is an awesome reference book for ground cover plants. It was recommended to me by Michigan State University Extension Offices as a guide to help me assess and select the appropriate ground cover for my front and back yards. It has detailed explanations of hundreds of ground covers and color photos of more than 300 of them. I would've liked to have had a color photo of each ground cover, but I can always google the ones that don't have pics if it sounds like they'll be suitable for my needs. In addition, there's a fabulous chart that provides an "at a glance" summary of each ground cover with information on the plant type, the climate zone, height, bloom season, type of foliage, scale size of the plant, lighting needs, soil type needed, & moisture required.
If you are a landscaper, I definitely recommend this as a reference book. I bought it for personal needs, for a limited use, and didn't want to pay the high price for a brand new book that I wouldn't use much, so I purchased it used, in "like new" condition and got a great price and a book that was in excellent condition.

Amazingly complete, used this in combination with Taylor's Guide to Ground Covers and Taylor's Guide to Shade Gardening. No more trying to grow grass under trees where no grass will ever grow. Go with the flow, plant something else. It can be perennial and drought-resistant and native if you just read a little! Quit being frustrated by your shady areas!

Perennial Ground Covers is a great example of the high standards of Timber Press publishing of horticultural subjects. MacKenzie does an overall exceptional job at breaking down hundreds of species of both traditional and non-traditional groundcovers. Many of the plants included here are clever and reasonable additions to those that would normally be considered groundcovers, while some step over a few bounds, with no harm done nonetheless, to be included in this group. This reference book is best for those with just a little more than basic plant knowledge, but can be just as helpful for the beginner. It is refreshing in its approach that does not baby the reader as it does not assume they know nothing about plants at all. The breakdown of this book consists of an introduction, including an explanation on nomenclature, a section of plates of each groundcover included in the book, a non-picture section of species in alphabetical order, and an outstanding appendix of characteristics in table form for all of the plants included. One main drawback of the book is a lack of family names of species that have descriptions. This is where a grouping by relationship or by environmental conditions would be better than an alphabetical listing. I appreciate that the pictures were kept together in a separate section, rather than including them alongside each description. This makes for easier use for reference. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in a reference for both groundcovers and perennials as two individual groups of plants.

Very thorough book. There are so many verities of ground covering plants I had no clue about, especially for arid regions. I would highly recommend it, it's an absolute must for a great landscape design.

I bought this after first taking it out of our local library, because I knew I would want to take notes in it, etc. Very informative, with excellent photographic plates. The author's dry tone and occasional pithy observations make this book an enjoyable read, full of useful facts.
