Much has changed in the role and use of ornamental grasses over the past 100 years.
Whereas turn-of-the-century gardeners had perhaps a dozen perennial grasses to choose from, today's gardeners have hundreds.
Ornamental grasses now embody a huge array of textures, forms, sizes, colors, flowering times, and cultural adaptations.
The Color Encyclopedia of Ornamental Grasses is intended for gardeners in a wide range of situations and climates, and draws from the experience and creativity of great gardens and gardeners around the world.
It begins with an exploration of the unique aesthetics and appeal of ornamental grasses before moving on to a review of the families of grasses and a survey of grasses in their native habitats.
Gardeners usually speak of "ornamental grasses" in the broad sense, including not only the true grasses but also related families of grass-like plants.
Following this tradition, the book provides a detailed treatment of perennial grasses, rushes, and cattails, as well as selected bamboos.
