A celebration of the exotic-style garden, where vibrant colour, dramatic architectural shapes and lush tropical leaves fill every available space. Experienced sub-tropical-plant grower Will Giles proves how easy it is to grow lush and hot-coloured plants in temperate as well as hot climate gardens and that many "tender" plants can easily survive cold winters. In addition to chapters on the different types of exotic plants - from cool and lush to brightly coloured to drier Mediterranean-style gardens - there is also a practical guide to planting and maintaining exotics, as well as a directory of key plants, organized by climate.
