A bountiful garden is easy to create, and gardeners can save big by choosing plants that grow quickly and spread vigorously. The fragrant stems and dusty-blue flower spikes of anise hyssop will pop up throughout the garden when the plant goes to seed. A cascade of golden Japanese forest grass is a fast but well-contained spreader. And when you add frost-tender plants to the mix, you'll open the door to an even wider world of possibilities. This book is filled with a colorful palette of plants that self-sow, spread from their roots, and outlast our seasonal expectations. You'll find simple lessons on propagating and providing winter protection; learn how to strike the balance between letting surprises arise and taking creative control; and discover how much nature gives away for free.

This is a good title especially if you have a yard with space in it and want a low maintenance way to fill it. I think if you read it you especially pay attention to what they say about what plants to use as there are some in there that in this area (zone #7) are considered weeds due to our sometimes mild climate.
