About this book

This is an illustrated guide to varieties, cultivation and care, with step-by-step instructions and over 150 inspiring photographs. Everything you need to know about choosing and growing stunning foliage in one handy practical guide. It features a full photographic directory of over 50 varieties of foliage plants, with detailed descriptions and botanical information on the size, height and spread of each one. It includes ideas covering the whole spectrum, such as blue fescue grass, green hostas, yellow ivies, golden heathers, orange conifers, bronze primulas, red Japanese maples, purple smoke bushes and silver lavenders. Foliage can display a fantastic range of hues and textures in the garden. Trees, shrubs, annuals and perennials are capable of producing show-stealing blues, purples, reds, yellows, white, silver and gold, as well as the more usual shades of green. This pretty handbook shows how to bring the whole spectrum to your garden, with step-by-step guidance on buying plants, cultivation, planting, growing in containers and routine maintenance. An illustrated directory covers 50 varieties selected for their leaf interest, from Acer to Spiraea. With such a great range to choose from, you can create a wonderful garden that does not depend on flowers for local points.
