6 Lacy, Allen Gardening with Groundcovers and Vines
0060169133 / 9780060169138; Gardening with Groundcovers and Vines is the first fully illustrated book to consider these two kinds of plants as indispensable elements of a garden - rather than substitutes for turf grass in shady spots or to help screen an ugly view. Allen Lacy, one of America's best writers, explores the unsuspected charm and beauty of these plants, teaching readers that together they bring density, diversity, and depth that are essential to a truly satisfying garden. The book goes far beyond staple plants, calling attention to hundreds of easily but not commonly grown plants: Groundcovers for sunny spaces and shady ones, herbaceous perennials and woody plants, vines both perennial and annual. Lacy's wonderful text is accompanied by more than 140 spectacular full-color photographs taken especially for this book. Includes sources for plants, appendices and an index. The jacket has a 1/4" tear at the top front flap; the bottom corners and spine ends show light wear. ; 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall
