Exotic shrubs of various sizes and shapes and leaf colour and texture provide enduring beauty in a garden landscape, and can be used to great advantage in combination with Australian native plants.Many exotics bear such magnificently shaped and coloured blooms that most gardeners cannot resist planting at least a few, no matter what the size of the area available or whether it is in a cold alpine region, the dry inland, the humid and windy coast or the hottest tropics.How to choose, plant and care for exotic shrubs are the themes of this book. Author Helen Simon, a member of the Australian Camellia Research Society, explains the essentials of shrub culture straightforwardly enough for any novice, while her descriptive list of species is wide enough to offer new interest to even the most experienced of gardeners.
