About this book

For decades, perennial meadows and prairies have inspired naturalistic planting design and now it's the turn of shrublands to stimulate a new paradigm in garden design.

Shrubs have a raw beauty and wild 'otherness' that make them a striking presence in the landscape and a rich source of inspiration for gardeners. Shrubs are tough: they thrive in the hottest of deserts roadcuts, make homes in abandoned pastures, and march reliably northward as we warm the earth.

Shrubs excel at sharing communities with other living things and this book demonstrates how their adaptability and reciprocities are so valuable in a time of global climate change. Profiling 12 wild shrublands from the USA and beyond, the authors identify the key shrubs and companion plants that define each plant community and the design takeaways including substitutions appropriate for a range of climates.

The final section showcases gardens that exemplify new ways of gardening with shrubs. This book is a call to incorporate the aesthetic lessons from shrubscapes into our planted spaces and also a deeper challenge to bring their collaborative way of being into practice.
