The Unexpected Houseplant - Gardening
by Tovah Martin

As the title suggests, this book presents 220 plants not typically thought of as house plants, or those you might not expect to thrive indoors. The author shares advice on growing an eclectic mix of bulbs, perennials, vines, succulents and small trees inside the home, along with colorful photographs of potted plants displayed in her home.

The content is largely organized by season, as the plants described have specific requirements for placement and basic care at certain times of year. For each plant, the author relates why it is included in her collection, as well as her successes and challenges in growing it indoors.

Every entry includes a summary of conventional information on flower and foliage attributes, size, exposure, optimum temperature, growth rate, soil type and common problems. Most of the plants listed are widely available at garden centers in most regions (a list of U.S. suppliers is also included). A refreshing resource for any indoor plant enthusiast.

Softcover, 7-1/2" x 9", 326 pages, 2012.
