Grasses and Bamboos: Using Form and Shape to Create Visual Impact in the Garden : Their distinctive appearance makes Grasses and Bamboos invaluable garden plants. Planted as single specimens in beds or containers, they make striking focal points. In mixed borders, smaller forms bring rhythm and diversity, while vigorous clump-formers will richly carpet the ground. Many are evergreen, and some variegated ones perform better in shade, making them perfect for difficult corners. This innovative book is both a celebration of the exciting qualities of this richly diverse group of plants and an imaginative presentation of their uses in the garden.
