Exotic gardens are free of the restrictions of conformity, they are imaginative, experimental and exciting. The strange and architectural beauty of big-leaved plants can be used to evoke a tropical atmosphere, even in a cool, temperate climate. The shadows they create and the way they catch the light makes the most of changing conditions, from early morning mists to hot summer evenings, and with so many evergreen species, the colour and shape of their foliage can add interest year round. Through detailed photographs and clear, concise descriptions, the book explains how to choose and use large-leaved plants to create drama, add accent to garden schemes, and make bold architectural statements. In-depth explanations of microclimates, providing shelter and plunge bedding cover all you need for their successful care and maintenance: trees & shrubs; perennials & ground cover; ferns & tree ferns; tuberous roots; bulbs; climbers; bananas; palms; grasses & bamboos; water plants
