About this book

Gardening with Shape, Line and Texture bridges the gap between garden design books and plant reference encyclopedias. Leading landscaper Linden Hawthorne looks at plants from a designer's perspective (where color is often a secondary consideration) and emphasizes the important roles of plant shape.

Part one reviews fine art principles and shows how they can be successfully applied to plant compositions by grouping plants into three heights: ground to knee, knee to navel, and navel to crown. She identifies different plant shapes - buns, mounds, tiers, fountains, uprights - and shows how the use of them contributes to the success of the finished design.

Part two is a plant sourcebook with plants listed alphabetically within their key plant shape categories. This innovative plant reference delivers plant information in a form that neatly dovetails with the garden design process and will inspire gardeners to look beyond color and begin to appreciate the whole plant.

Media reviews
As more emphasis is placed these days on gardens as artful statements, Hawthorne's sourcebook will add a thoughtful reassessment of plants to the dialogue. -- Alice Joyce Booklist 20091001
