Gardening with foliage plants : leaf, bark, and berry
As Ethne Clarke reveals, colorful stems, handsome bark, striking leaf shapes, stunning berries, and luxuriant foliage are just some of the characteristics that gardeners should consider to enhance the beauty of large or small gardens. Using foliage plants as an effective backdrop to flowers or as a focal point serves to beauty a garden throughout the year, even in winter. The author suggests that landscapes provide ideas about creating the natural habitat within a cultivated area. She describes some two hundred plants that have interesting features and shows how they can be used to best effect in the garden. Detailed planting plans and revealing photographs of well-known and less-familiar plants, especially commissioned for this book, illustrate how to use plants in gardens of all sizes. Also included is a comprehensive plant directory consisting of plants that make the most dramatic contribution to the garden scene, arranged by color. Filled with fresh ideas, this is the perfect book for creative individuals interested in a new approach to gardening.
