Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Shrubs are the backbone of the garden. Chosen wisely, they will do more for your landscape than any other kind of plant. Chosen carelessly, they can be expensive mistakes. In this handy new TAYLOR'S GUIDE, you'll find the most-sought-after cultivars, offering better flowers, unusual foliage, colorful berries, improved disease tolerance, or compact size and shape for small gardens. Here you can choose the perfect shrubs

- to give you privacy and screen out unattractive views - to act as a beautiful focal point or enhance a mixed border - to control erosion or create a ground cover that needs no mowing - for difficult situations such as windy seashores, droughty shade, and wet areas

And for every plant in this authoritative book, you'll find detailed how-to-grow information.

Book News Annotation:

Offering shrubs (which overlap with smaller trees) for every purpose and taste, this compact guide covers the selection basics, caveats about invasives, landscaping and cultivation tips, and a color gallery of plants from Abelia to Zenobia. Includes a zone hardiness map. Lacks information on the author.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
