'[T]he first fully illustrated book to consider [groundcovers and vines] as indispensable elements of a garden -- instead of substitutes for turf grass in shady spots or to help screen an ugly view. ... The book goes far beyond such staple plants as pachysandra and English ivy, calling attention to hundreds of easily but not commonly grown plants'. -- from jacket flap.

From experienced garden writer Lacy (former columnist for the Wall Street Journal and the New York Times ) comes a remarkable book that features groundcovers and vines in the home landscape. Lacy's experience with growing plants is evident as he challenges the grower to garden with plants that are less visible in many trendy gardening centers. Often these plants lack the color impact of flower blossoms that gardeners prefer in the landscape, but Lacy clearly demonstrates why specific groundcovers and vines are important components of home gardens. Anyone with a year or two of gardening experience will be able to use this book to enhance his or her knowledge of garden plants. The text is illustrated with 140 fine color photos that aid the reader in visualizing how specific plants look in gardens. For all gardening collections.
