Ornamental Foliage Plants is a comprehensive guide to 1,500 garden and indoor plants grown mainly for their exceptional foliage.

The first part of Ornamental Foliage Plants explores the different ways these plants can be used in landscaping. Concise chapters include:

* The winter garden
* Autumn color
* Architectural plants
* Hedges and topiary
* Succulent plants
* Plants with variegated leaves
* Silvery-leafed plants.

The main section of the book is an A-Z directory of ornamental foliage plants. Entries are organized by botanical name with useful descriptions of the species as well as varieties and forms. Quick reference symbols indicate the plant's outstanding features. Information includes:

* Imperial and metric measurements
* Cultivation notes
* Best uses
* Region of origin
* Common names.

This book, illustrated with 1,000 color photographs, is an indispensable reference for gardeners of all levels.

Ornamental Foliage Plants for Cultivation features over 1500 plants from all over the world, many of which are useful cultivators, varieties or forms. They have been selected for their value in the landscaping of gardens, be they big or small. Their claims to fame may be their architectural form, their intriguing texture, their unusual habit, their miniature or immense size, or their suitability for a particular situation, such as for topiary, a conservatory or to provide winter color. Many plants have been chosen for their striking leaves, which may be patterned, enormous, dissected or magnificently colored. Every entry has notes on cultivation and use, and is coded to correspond with the climatic zones of the world map at the front of the book. There are at least 1000 color photographs and 600 line drawings. Gardeners and landscapers have become increasingly aware of how easy foliage plants are to care for and what a magnificent palette they provide for simple, clean garden design. Many lend themselves to small formal gardens for urban spaces, while trees and mass plantings can give perspective and interesting effects in larger gardens. Style is often a matter of restraint and the judicious use of foliage plants sometimes brings to a garden a greater sense of peace and relaxation than one cluttered with colorful flowers.
