Overview

To grow plants at home, one must be equal parts botanist and Botticelli-there is an art as well as a science to it. Houseplants A to Z addresses both sides of that equation, providing sound, practical advice for purchasing, caring for, and decorating with 36 types of houseplants (and many more species), from African violets to zebra plants. As lavishly illustrated as its companion volume, Flowers A to Z, this new book by the same author-photographer team offers detailed information on purchasing, feeding, and propagating, as well as interesting houseplant lore. What really distinguishes this book, however, is the focus on decorating. Photographs illustrate ideas for arrangements, while artistically inclined readers will take inspiration from the author's suggestions for plants that combine well to create spectacular interior displays.
