Exotics Are Easy
Guild of Master Craftsman Publications, May 1, 2002 - Gardening - 120 pages
Extravagant waving fronds, outrageously gaudy blossoms, palms hung with fruit-exotic plants have become horticulture's hottest item. They're even coming out of the greenhouse and into the backyard as people see how simple it really is to grow colorful bougainvillea, tree ferns, hibiscus, and more. Every blazingly magnificent photo here-along with unequalled, expert advice from Exotic & Greenhouse Gardening Magazine-will lure you to the garden or conservatory to begin planting. Get on the 'bamboo bandwagon,' go on 'flights of fancy' with birds of paradise, and cultivate some 'dinosaur food' with the easy-to-care for cycad. Try spiky agaves and yuccas or fuzzy white Cleistocactus straussii, which grow in tall columns. Plant profiles tell you all you need to know, and boxed tips flourish throughout.
