Conifers are among the most beautiful and versatile of all landscape plants, offering year-round variety of colour, form, and texture. They remain underutilised in the South, in part because of the common misconception that they are not adaptable to the climate. Laying such claims to rest, this book introduces readers to conifers that grow successfully in southern landscapes.<br><br>Gardeners in the South traditionally have relied on the mass of spectacular spring blooms as the mainstay of their landscapes. However, with the addition of conifers or cultivars of the genus ginkgo, homeowners can enjoy twelve months of low maintenance color. Tom Cox and John Ruter present a variety of conifers that grow from Virginia to Florida to Texas. They provide tips on growing, pruning, preventing disease and pest problems, and on proper selection and cultivation requirements—all unique to the Southeast.<br><br>In short, this guide includes essential information about <em>what</em> to buy, <em>where</em> to plant it, and <em>how</em> to maintain it. It also offers advice on what to expect from mature conifers and ginkgo while suggesting genera and species that have proved adaptable and cultivars that have performed well in the southeastern United States.<em> Landscaping with Conifers and Ginkgo for the Southeast</em> is a compilation of years of research and horticulture experience that will aid anyone, whether novice or professional, in creating beautiful year-round landscapes.
