Plants with Style: A Plantsman's Choices for a Vibrant, 21st-Century Garden
Guides us away from boring plants and directly to vibrant, jaw-dropping, stylish plants. It's 2016, bring your garden into the 21st century!
Why settle for dull, ho-hum plants? In this spirited book, plant guru Kelly Norris calls for a garden revolution: out with the boring plants and in with the newcomers that will make your jaw drop and your pulse quicken!
A passionate horticulturist and lifelong gardener, Kelly is the ideal guide to the botanical riches available to today’s gardeners. He shines a spotlight on the A-list plants in every category, plants that will thrive, not merely survive—fabulous natives that revel in difficult soil, trees and shrubs with sublime bark and structure, unusual seasonal gems, and more. Along the way, he shows you how to forge a personal style in harmony with your garden’s setting and local environment.
As Kelly puts it, “A garden is the best way to savor life on earth.” Let him guide you to the plants that will provide a richer, more fulfilling connection between you and your own patch of soil.
