  2. PLANT PERSONALITIES

    PLANT PERSONALITIES

    by Carol Klein. Is that plant flamboyant, frivolous, or shy and retiring? In this marvelous look at herbaceous plants, Carol Klein categorizes them by personality traits and shows how mixing diverse personalities makes a vibrant garden. She has Bread and Butter plants, the stalwarts of the garden, Cinderella plants that shoot to stardom, then disappear, and Shooting Stars, short lived but exciting. Also to be found are the Will-O-the-Wisps and Wafty Whisperers that add light and movement, Prickly Customers and Soft Touches, that add texture, and the Dainty and Detailed. Making bolder statements are the Gatecrashers, uninvited self-seeders, the Seductive Sophisticates, subtle yet charismatic, and those Drama Queens that demand attention. Klein enthusiastically introduces readers to great varieties with wonderful descriptions and discusses their cultivation. Each plants personality is further showcased in exquisite close-up color photographs (most full page) that are works of art themselves and would be lovely framed.

    SEASCAPE GARDENING

    by Anne Halpin. Ahh - to be lucky enough to have to deal with issues of gardening by the seashore!

The solutions involve growing adaptive plants and creating sheltered havens for less hardy plants. Halpin first offers a brief geography lesson of the area covered in her book, Maine to the Carolinas. Then she discusses planning, design, structures, hardscapes, planting, care, and winterizing for seashore gardens. Then comes the fun part - garden profiles of gorgeous seashore gardens - interesting stories and gardens to lust after! You'll enjoy visiting these gardens and viewing color photos of the lovely landscapes. Another 80 page section showcases trees, shrubs, perennials and grasses that are proven seaside survivors.
