Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Shrubs provide the bones of the landscape. They are versatile, useful, and beautiful. They mark boundaries, create barriers, deter animals, frame views, and block eyesores. Shrubs can promote privacy, offer a welcome to guests, or act as a background in a border. As ground covers, they can control erosion or act as an attractive, low-maintenance alternative to lawns. In their all-season versatility, they provide flowers and fragrance, colorful foliage, berries for the birds, and green color in winter. Because shrubs are not throwaway plants, it's all the more important to buy the right shrub for the right place. Too many gardeners have had the experience of putting in a neat little shrub and watching it grow to be a window-blocking monster. With this expert guide, readers will buy the right shrub in the first place and learn how to keep it looking its best.

Synopsis:

Taylor's Guides are well known and widely praised for their clear, informative text and expert horticultural information. Each flexibound volume combines beauty and authority, featuring hundreds of stunning, full-color identification photographs and advice from experts across the country.

Synopsis:

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.
