Publisher Comments:

So Happy Together...

It's not just about flowers anymore. The big idea for containers (and gardens) today is foliage combining - creating that perfect marriage of foliage colors, textures and shapes for year-round delight. Foliage designers Karen Chapman and Christina Salwitz showcase more than 60 inspired plant partnerships - sophisicated or playful, dramatic or sweet - with luscious photography and easy-to-follow "recipes." Fine Foliage is a feast for the eyes and a design bonanza for the patio, poolside or garden.

"Fine Foliage is a great user-friendly design resource, as Karen Chapman and Christina Salwitz explain why each dazzling combination works - bringing artistic design within easy reach of all gardeners." -Debra Prinzing, author of Slow Flowers; author and co-creator of The 50 Mile Bouquet

Synopsis:

Foliage comes in a mind-boggling variety of color, shape and growth habit. But which ones complement each other and work best for the many garden situations people have? Fine Foliage gives the home gardener 60+ examples of plant combinations that work for every purpose, whether in sun or shade, path or meadow, porch or poolside. Each plant combination is introduced with an on-site photograph and "Why This Works" text, accompanied by individual close-up photos and quick-tip info about care, site, soil, zone and season - a complete "recipe" that even a beginner gardener can follow. Fine Foliage brings elegant, expert design and style to the garden and patio. Full color photographs throughout. Includes an index.
Fine Foliage was named one of Amazon's "Best of the Year" garden books for 2013.
The Garden Writers Association has recognized Fine Foliage with a 2014 Silver Award of Achievement
