Creating Contrast with Dark Plants

Creating Contrast with Dark Plants

by Freya Martin (Author)


Enter the plant world's heart of darkness--and discover it's beautiful, filled with luscious, deep tones to enrich any garden's color scheme. Dark plants are those with black, or nearly black, flowers and foliage. Unusual and marvelous, often tinged with purple or red, they can take the breath away; just look at the delicate, velvety chocolate cosmos (named for its delicious aroma), for example. Choose from an amazing array of annuals, biennials, and tender perennials; bulbs, corms, rhizomes, and tubers; hardy perennials; and even trees, shrubs, and grasses, all in an alphabetical directory with descriptions and growing information. Six easy-to-implement design schemes take you through the seasons, and from sun-loving to shade plants. A Selection ofthe Garden Book Club.
