Book Description

December 1991
What gardener doesn't yearn for a garden that looks beautiful in all seasons and yet is easy to care for? The author shows that by designing your home landscape around leaf color and texture, rather than by focusing exclusively on flower color and bloom time, you can accomplish both these goals. 16 pages of color photographs; line drawings throughout.

Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Many gardeners would concede that leaf shape or even color is not their first concern in choosing a flower or shrub to plant. But Glattstein's book may persuade them that leaves should be right up there with flower color and season of bloom as a deciding factor. For if they dismiss foliage as frippery, gardeners may be left with only "haystacks" for company after blooms fade (or, for want of sun, fail to emerge at all). Her design points are illustrated with spot line drawings, and plans--as well as detailed descriptions--accompany the selection of gardens. After introductory chapters on leaf form, color and seasonal interest, with charts for each, Glattstein devotes most of her book to a plant dictionary, covering everything from trees, shrubs and ground covers to ferns, flowers (annual and perennial) and vines. Although most of the plants are not novel, their inclusion--and the author's savvy information--may cause a renewal of interest. The closing chapter covers the nitty-gritty of planting, preparation and maintenance. Glattstein is a journalist and lecturer. Photos not seen by PW. Garden Book Club main selection.
