About this book

Bamboos are unbeatable garden plants valued for their attractive culms, year-round foliage, and capacity to add serenity to any garden scene. But there are angels and devils in this huge plant group and careful selection is the key to success. Gardeners new to bamboos will relish this book that proposes imaginative design and landscaping ideas, inspires exploration of a new and appealing plant group, takes the sweat out of maintenance and puts these dynamic, rewarding plants within easy reach.

"This book provides a great introduction to the subject, but even the expert will find much to entertain and enlighten."
- Andy Benham, The Garden
