Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This encyclopedia by a distinguished American horticulturist is the most authoritative and best-illustrated reference ever published on ornamental grasses. Rick Darke has been studying and photographing grasses in gardens and native landscapes around the world for more than 20 years, and this book includes the best 500 photographs from his collection of nearly 15,000. At its heart is the illustrated alphabetical encyclopedia of important ornamental grasses, sedges, rushes, restios, cat-tails, and selected bamboos, with many plants illustrated in more than one season. Intended for gardeners in a wide range of situations and climates, this book is an invaluable tool for landscape architects, garden designers, nursery professionals, and home gardeners.

Synopsis:

If you are a grass afficionado, your library is not complete without the most authoritative and best-illustrated reference ever published. Includes more than 500 photographs of grasses, sedges, rushes, restios, cat-tails, and selected bamboos--many taken in more than one season.
