Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Encyclopedia of Water Garden Plants is the definitive photographic reference to the full range of plants available to the water gardener. This volume includes hundreds of water garden plants often overlooked in other books, such as marginal plants, floating plants, bog plants, and submerged plants. Of course, waterlilies and lotuses are described in detail as well. The encyclopedia offers complete information on hardiness, culture, propagation, and pests and diseases. With more than 700 beautiful color photos and helpful introductory chapters on pots, soils, and fertilizers, this book promises to be the bible for the selection and cultivation of every water garden plant.

Book News Annotation:

The founders of Water Gardening magazine and the American Water Garden Society present a photographic reference to the range of plants available to the water gardener. They cover marginal plants, floating plants, bog plants, and submerged plants in addition to the more predictable waterlilies and lotuses. The photos are scrumptious and the text is thorough, offering information on hardiness, culture, propagation, landscape uses, and pests and diseases, as well as introductory chapters on pots, soils, and fertilizers. Oversize: 8.75x11.25<">.
