In Special Plants, Jane Taylor offers a personal selection of both familiar and lesser-known plants. She begins with those trees and shrubs with enough character to stand on their own and to provide an overall framework for the garden. She moves on to plants that scramble over walls and arches, and then to those that are happiest in woodland and bog. She looks at plants for beds and borders in two ways—to provide long-lasting flower and foliage effects and to add more fleeting delights, particularly those of bulbs and annuals. At the heart of each chapter is a plant-by-plant directory in which each entry pinpoints the plant's most effective feature and explains its basic horticultural requirements. Gracefully written and exquisitely photographed, this is book that will find its place at the side of every discriminating gardener.
