Book by Cramer, Harriet

Cramer explains the soil, water, air, fertilizing, and mulching requirements needed for a successful shade garden and explores design tactics that make the most of a shady garden site. She discusses the importance of light and shadow, color, texture, form, and layering. The bulk of the book is a compilation of shade-tolerant plants: small trees, evergreen trees, deciduous and evergreen shrubs, perennials, annuals, ornamental grasses, ferns, and bulbs. Each plant's shade tolerance or preference or both is given, along with its size, aesthetic value, cultural needs, landscape uses, insects and diseases, and cultivars. Each has a color photograph. A final chapter contains a brief text and photographs of a variety of gardens--from a planting in and around a rock wall to a spring garden on the edge of a woods. George Cohen
