Every perennial is hardy in its native climate, but many can't survive winter temperatures in colder zones. However, with this comprehensive and inspirational resource, cooler-zone gardeners can enjoy these plants season after season by bringing them indoors for the winter. Geraniums, gladioli, dahlias, begonias, rosemary, lavender, and even impatiens . . . plant by plant and step by step, the McGowans show you how to rescue more than 160 tender perennials from the killing cold. With a little indoor care, your plants will be healthy, hearty, and ready to thrive again in your garden come spring.
