66 HOBHOUSE, PENELOPE. Penelope Hobhouse's Gardening Through The Ages: An Illustrated History Of Plants And Their Influence On Garden Styles- From Ancient Egypt To The Present Day.
Simon and Schuster, Inc., New York: 1992. 0671728873 / 9780671728878 h Hardcover with dustjacket. Good condition. Slight discoloration to DJ. 
How did a newly introduced plant arrive in a border or in a popular planting scheme? How often have new plants actually influenced and molded the designs in which they were featured? What plants were used to create certain desired effects? The multiplicity of ways in which plants have contributed to garden design is a theme of this far-reaching and absorbing study. Penelope Hobhouse - plantswoman, gardener, designer, and authority on historic gardens - is uniquely qualified to shed new light on the plantings that play a vital role in the history of garden style. Many authors have followed particular themes of this complex subject - the quest for new plants, the adventures of plant hunters, and the work of individual botanists and garden makers. Others have more broadly documented the evolution of style, but have paid scant attention to the details of what was actually grown in the gardens. Against this background of scholarship, Penelope Hobhouse focuses on the plants themselves and the interest - even passion - they have aroused. Gardening Through the Ages explores the perennial interaction between what plants are available and the ideas of the people who grow them. Includes an Index.

University of Arizona Press, Tucson . s Softcover. Brand new book. 
Newcomers to the Southwest usually find that their favorite landscape plants aren't suited to the hot, dry climate. tells how gardeners can better adapt themselves to the challenge. Drawing on her experience with public horticulture in the Phoenix metropolitan area, Irish explores the vexations and delights of desert gardening. She offers practical advice on plants and gardening practices for anyone who lives in the Southwest, from El Paso to Palm Springs, Tucson to Las Vegas. Irish encourages readers who may be new to the desert—or desert dwellers who may be new to gardening—to stop struggling against heat, aridity, and poor soils and instead learn to use and appreciate the wonderful and well-adapted plants native to the desert. She shares information and anecdotes about trees, shrubs, perennials, agaves, cacti, and other plants that make gardening in the Southwest a unique experience, and provides further information about plants from other desert regions that will easily adapt to the Southwest. In addition to descriptions of plants, Irish also offers tips on planting, watering, pruning, and propagation. For anyone who has struggled to maintain a patch of green or blanched at their water bill after unproductive irrigation, the answer to an attractive landscape may be as close as the desert around you. And for anyone who has bought a catalog guide to desert plants and not known which to choose, this book can set you on the right path. Mary Irish shows how to take heart in available plants of adaptable beauty in a book to enjoy while waiting for the next planting cycle.
