About this title

Synopsis:

Dust jacket notes: "The bamboos are virtually synonymous with China, having been used for millenia not only for landscaping purposes but in the making of countless things from buildings to chopsticks. The bamboo in China symbolizes things virtuous and honorable. So few of the Chinese species were introduced in earlier years that Western gardeners and horticulturalists have tended to regard bamboo as a tall, invasive, tender family of plants. Yet plant hunting expeditions in China within the last 50 years have uncovered numerous new species, many of which are non-invasive, cold-hardy and of moderate height. This important book presents for the first time all of these diverse Chinese bamboos. In addition to descriptions of all the Chinese species presently known, the book includes chapters dealing with landscape uses, the role of bamboo in Chinese culture and cultural requirements. The Bamboos of China will help gardeners and landscapers create distinctive new landscapes, or add exciting new dimensions to existing gardens. 68 black & white photographs, 64 line drawings, 4 color plates."
