Description
A winner of the 2008 American Horticultural Society Book Award, this gorgeously photographed garden book advocates looking to the leaf, artfully combined with other plants, to achieve textural depth and season-extending color not possible with flowers and grasses alone. Organized by color and texture, each chapter illustrates the features and requirements of dozens of plants, all chosen for the unique appeal of their leaves. Colors range from brilliant chartreuse and shining silver to dusky, moody maroon, while surfaces can be rough or smooth, velvety or prickly, and edges can be scalloped, smooth, or saw-toothed.

"Nancy J. Ondra's new book ... is a great marriage of plant expertise, easy-to-understand prose and heart-stopping, gorgeous photographs by Rob Cardillo. As I flipped through the pages of my copy—which I had waited for anxiously—I realized that I would never look at foliage in the same way. "—Chicago Sun-Times
