Название: The encyclopedia of grasses for livable landscapes
Автор: Darke R.
Taking a broad view of gardening with grasses, Darke acknowledges the ornamental attributes that enhance private plantings and looks at the myriad possibilities for using grasses in natural areas and public landscapes. A notable photographer, Darke includes more than 1,000 entrancing photographs to illustrate grass family members, from grasses and sedges to rushes, restios, and cattails. Issues of sustainability and ecology color Darke's thoughtful approach. International travels take him through Japan and houses thatched with miscanthus to a railway line in Pennsylvania where he documents switchgrass emerging from granite walls. A presentation of the botany, aesthetics, and design potential of grasses advances the concept of gardening with these plants. Each plant entry includes advice on maintenance, cultivation, and nomenclature implements^B as well as descriptions of characteristics and cultural requirements. Darke's impressive achievement should stand as the definitive resource for grasses for some time to come.
