Grasses are the keynote plants of 21st-century gardening and garden design. They offer a diversity of size, form, color, texture, and flowering time that is unsurpassed by any other genus, providing color and interest across the entire year. There are grasses suitable for dry and wet gardens, tiny urban plots and large country gardens, formal gardens, or truly wild spaces. In this splendid book, supported by the Royal Horticultural Society and illustrated with 200 gorgeous color photos, Roger Grounds guides the reader through the wealth of choice. Individual portraits capture the fluid, dynamic, evanescent beauty of over 100 different grasses, while inspiring photos of borders and gardens illustrate a host of ideas for growing and planting them. Another section illustrates and explains the unique structure of grasses, and practical chapters shows how to plant, control, and divide them.
