內容簡介 Tropical gardens are no longer exclusive to tropical areas. Many gardeners in cooler climates are adopting the tropical garden design, which is possible through careful choice of plants and flowers. Main features include plants with very large leaves, vegetation that builds in height towards the back of the garden, creating a dense garden. Large plants and small trees hang over the garden, leaving sunlight to hit the ground directly.In a tropical landscape, the aim is to create a closely planted garden where plants appear to jostle for space. Plants should be chosen based on their height, size, shape and texture of their leaves.Tropical Gardens is a lovely introduction to tropical landscaping styles and a gardening aesthetic that combines the best of East and West with superior knowledge of plant cultivation and care.
