Planting: A New Perspective is an essential resource for designers and gardeners looking to create plant-rich, beautiful gardens that support biodiversity and nourish the human spirit. An intimate knowledge of plants is essential to the success of modern landscape design, and Planting makes Oudolf's considerable understanding of plant ecology and performance accessible, explaining how plants behave in different situations, what goes on underground, and which species make good neighbors. Extensive plant charts and planting plans will help you choose plants for their structure, color, and texture as well as the way they perform in the landscape. A detailed directory with details like each plant's life expectancy, the persistence of its seedheads, its tendency to spread, and propensity to self-seed, this book is a beautiful and invaluable resource.

The photos were inspiring, but I never read more than 20 words in the enter book. I would have preferred more photos with a few words per photos.

Very sophisticated landscaping for large to medium public spaces. Lots of ornamental grasses. Almost all plantings are about two feet tall. None of the fussy little pansies I love, but in a good way. A gorgeous book.
