Fine foliage, architectural outlines, delicate flowers, summer color and winter interest—ornamental grasses and bamboos provide all this and more. This practical guide shows how to make the most of these amazing plants in the garden. The book goes back to basics and details the various types of grasses and bamboos. There’s advice on buying plants and soil preparation and step-by-step sequences for planting, cutting back, trimming, propagating, and sowing. Fourteen planting schemes range from a prairie planting to an urban jungle, contemporary bedding to pots and planters. These schemes are depicted in beautifully illustrated color elevations. An A-Z illustrated gallery of bamboos and grasses highlight the many species available today.
