The Subtropical Garden

The Subtropical Garden Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A tempting selection of palms, bamboos, shrubs, foliage plants, perennials, orchids, and ferns suitable for gardeners in USDA zones 9 and 10 — or adventurous souls in colder areas who want to garden on the edge — or for use in containers for overwintering indoors.

Book News Annotation:

Illustrated with 200 superb color photographs, this volume provides inspiration and guidance to the subtropical gardener and creates a desperate desire to move southward for the rest of us. Chapters cover palms, architectural plants, bamboos, tree ferns, flowering trees, climbers, shrubs, foliage plants, accents, orchids, bromeliads, ferns, and water and bog plants. First published in 1992.
