Perennials and their garden habitats - Hansen and Stahl
Actually the first North American edition, translated from the fourth German edition, this volume describes a new way of using perennials in parks and gardens based on ecological rather than purely aesthetic principles. It demonstrates how attention to ecological needs of herbaceous perennials can result in low maintenance plantings in parks and other public spaces. Nearly all the perennials currently available from nurseries are categorized according to the conditions in which they are most likely to thrive in the face of competition from other plants and weeds. Includes 32 pages of color photographs and numerous b&w drawings. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.
