Overview

Fine Foliage: Elegant Plant Combinations for Garden and Container by Karen Chapman, Christina Salwitz

Foliage comes in a mind-boggling variety of color, shape and growth habit. But which ones complement each other and work best for the many garden situations people have? Fine Foliage gives the home gardener 60+ examples of plant combinations that work for every purpose, whether in sun or shade, path or meadow, porch or poolside. Each plant combination is introduced with an on-site photograph and “Why This Works” text, accompanied by individual close-up photos and quick-tip info about care, site, soil, zone and season – a complete “recipe” that even a beginner gardener can follow. Fine Foliage brings elegant, expert design and style to the garden and patio. Full color photographs throughout. Includes an index.

Fine Foliage was named one of Amazon’s “Best of the Year” garden books for 2013.
