This book is a rich visual tribute to the magnificent public gardens found near Canada's majestic Niagara Falls, with vivid full-colour photography showing key sites at their peak.
Included are the Botanical Gardens, the Niagara Parks Greenhouse, Queen Victoria Park, historic Oakes Garden Theatre, the Floral Clock, and the Rainbow Garden. Rock, water, shade and butterfly gardens are all covered, as are rose, peony, iris and lily collections, seasonal displays, period gardens, carpet beddings, and perennial gardens.
Texts inform readers about the history of the gardens and greenhouses from the early twentieth century to the present day. Also included are a visual species index and a "what's in bloom when" calendar.
Niagara in Bloom makes a beautiful gift book for gardeners and a lovely souvenir for visitors to the Falls.

"Anne Marie's book is a virtual tour in words and lush photographs of Niagara's parks."

- Christina Selby Canadian Gardening

"Anne Marie Van Nest has written a beautiful book describing the gardens of the Niagara Parks Commission (NPC), enticing readers to come and experience, in person, Niagara in bloom."
