Easy Gardens for North Central Texas covers the best trees, shrubs, perennials, annuals, and vines for a 52-county area in north central Texas. The first chapter addresses gardening basics for conditions in north central Texas. The following chapters address the plant materials themselves. For each plant that the book features, two companion plants for that plant are also featured so that the gardener knows which combinations to make.
The book is easy to navigate, and it features beautiful color photos of plant materials and gives pertinent growing information for each plant. Those plants requiring the least amount of maintenance are designated as blue-ribbon plants; other plants are designated as red-ribbon plants, and they are not far behind the blue-ribbon plants in maintenance requirements. Symbols across the top of each plant page indicate key characteristics of the plant so that the reader can learn about the plant without having to read a lot of text.
