During the 1980s scientific and propagation advances resulted in hundreds of new varieties of flowers becoming available to the ordinary gardener, and each year many more come onto the market. These new plants offer gardeners both a chance to experiment and a change from the traditional varieties. "The New Flowers" aims to reflect some of these trends in flower-breeding by presenting the best of the established newcomers and to show readers how to use them to pleasing effect in the modern garden. The author also provides an introduction to the latest in garden style, from the sculptured, minimalist look of the Oriental paved patio to the natural "ungroomed" look of the wild garden, with many alternative suggestions in between.
