Synopses & Reviews
Cushion plants play a charming and essential part in every well-planned rock garden. They all form, more or less, a mound of closely packed foliage, and offer great beauty and a diversity of size, leaf, and flower. Cushion Plants for the Rock Garden details the major groups - including both easy-to-grow varieties and those exquisite rarities that are more demanding - for their cultivation, propagation, pests, and diseases. All details are provided for successful cultivation in pots, troughs, plunge beds, and various other appropriate sites, plus information on pests and diseases. In all, 87 plants are described fully so that every reader will know which he or she wants to try first.Published at $29.95 Our last copies available at $14.98
