Presents authoritative information on selecting, planting, maintaining, and propagating a wide selection of plants that can and should be used as groundcovers. While the author, a respected commercial grower of groundcovers, treats the usual suspects (vinca, ivy, pachysandra, viola), he also discusses plants such as smaller rhododendrons, vines, hellebores, or grasses that can work equally well. Of special interest are chapters on selecting the right plant for various terrains and an extensive groundcover selection chart. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.

Ground covers take on new meaning in this enlightening book designed to make gardeners' work easier. Hostas, stonecrops, smaller rhododendrons, prayer plants, pyracanthas, box huckleberry, hellebores, daylilies, grasses, alpine willows, & unsupported climbing vines are just some of MacKenzie's imaginative suggestions. Even Gunnera manicata, a 6-foot-tall, 8-foot-wide plant, is suggested for some situations!About the Author:
David MacKenzie owns and operates Hortech in Spring Lake, Michigan — one of the country's largest and most progressive wholesale ground cover nurseries.
When he was just out of college, David discovered in a homeowner's backlot and registered the new Ottawa weeping white pine. He has since reproduced the tree using the grafting method. He has been hybridizing, photographing, researching, lecturing on ground covers, and generally creating plant magic since 1983.
David has written several articles for American Nurseryman. He also speaks about landscape photography, native plants, plant research and ecology, as well as his love of ground covers and gardening in Michigan (zone 5). His audience includes master gardeners, serious amateur gardeners, landscape contractors, designers, architects, and horticulture educators.
