The first thing many people notice when looking at a garden is color, be it yellow, blue, red, pink, or various shades of green. The chapters in Part II introduce you to the wonderful sources of gardening color that the plant world supplies: annuals, perennials, flowering bulbs, and roses. Although it's easy to think only of flowers when looking to give your garden an impressive color palette, these chapters also introduce you to the great possibilities that foliage plants, such as hostas, can provide. As you read about these plants, be sure to jot down information about the ones that interest you. When you're ready to start looking for them for your own garden, you may find the plants you've picked out are even more beautiful and interesting face to, er, plant!
