Publisher Comments:

This comprehensive, one-volume source covers the identification, culture, and use of indoor foliage plants. The book's unique quality comes from the authors' blending of botanical, horticultural, and landscape architectural perspectives. Presents detailed information on nomenclature, identification principles, plant growth and development, propagation, and aspects of soils, fertilizers, and climate. Also covers plant care and indoor plant design principles. Three major chapters--Climate, Insects and Diseases, and Design--are provided by authorities in the field who specialize in these areas. Concluding chapters offer specific information on major indoor plant groups and the 150 most popular plants. Includes over 300 original drawings commissioned by a horticultural artist.
