Continuing his informal series of books on ornamental trees, Vincent Simeone offers ideal evergreens for landscaping purposes. Great Landscape Evergreens treats conifers, broadleaf evergreens, and deciduous and semi-evergreen shrubs, for the full range of evergreens. In particular Simeone discusses how evergreens can be used to best effect in the landscape—as winter interest; as borders, hedges, and living fences; and as screens to block unsightly views and to offer privacy. Detailed entries for more than 80 species describe each evergreen’s size, shape, color, flower (if applicable), light and soil requirements, hardiness zones and uses in the landscape. Beautiful photographs show evergreens in the landscape. Planting and care instructions round out the book along with a list of "Vinnie’s Top Fifteen Screening Plants."
