Made for the Shade
This is a very good all-round book on shade gardening. It has an ideal combination of pictures of shade plants/gardens in shade and a plant-by-plant discussion of good shade plants, so it is both a good reference book and a good inspiration book - a must-have for your garden library if you garden with shade or have a woodland garden. It's relatively inexpensive too as it's a good quality softcover. The author gardens in north-eastern US so a few plants aren't suitable for Canada but many are (particularly for southern areas) and the USDA Zone suitability is always included in the discussion of each plant, so it's easy to sort out what is suitable for Canadian gardens.
