Green-flowered plants, though uncommon, add interest to flower and garden arrangements. This gallery of green-flowered plants – or least what will pass for a green flower to the gardener’s eye – includes 84 exemplars, ranging from houseplants to trees.
They are presented in alphabetical order by Latin name, from Acanthus hirsutus (a herbaceous perennial) to Zigadenus elegans (a bulbous perennial). Each photograph is accompanied by epigrammatic information relating to the type of plant, hardiness, position, height, spread, care, cultivation and use, and sprinkled with trivia.
Hardcover, 7-1/4" x 9-1/4", 182 pages, 2009.
