Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This book features 42 gorgeous, abundant tropical gardens around Manila and its suburbs. The photographs of lush tropical foliage and rich colors of the flowers are almost real enough to touch."—Chicago Botanic Garden

"Intended for "gardening enthusiasts," the full-color photos throughout this large-format book may inspire designers working in tropical settings. Brief text describes the landscapes, mostly residential, but the photos are the draw here for landscape architects."—Landscape Architecture Magazine
