Overview

Azalea, flowering cherry, peony, lily, pachysandra...For centuries Japan has been the source of some of the most popular and commonplace plants in our gardens. Yet before now there existed no general guide to the great wealth and variety of Japanese plants readily available in North America. Here at last is everything you need to know about how to select and maintain Japanese plants and a list of nurseries across the United States from which you can easily obtain them. Judy Glattstein, a bestselling garden book writer, has found out which plants will thrive in New England and which in New Mexico, which plants will survive city windowboxes and which the wilds of suburban backyards. Included are chapters on groundcovers, vines, trees, and shrubs, as well as perennials, and alpine and water plants. In-depth descriptions of the plants are accompanied by 34 color photographs and 33 black-and-white botanical illustrations. Glattstein's advice on plant selection and care is clear enough to help the novice and detailed enough to satisfy expert gardeners. Whatever style of garden you choose, there are plants from Japan - both well known and exotic - that will be right for you.
