It explains their characteristics, and advises on how they can be planted and grown to produce a stunning display to be enjoyed even in temperate climates. With A to Z reference of exotic plants and plenty of ideas for design, finishing touches, and desert gardens, this is the perfect guide for a gardener at any level.
