Description from Amazon

Planting: A New Perspective [Hardcover] : Noel Kingsbury (Author), Piet Oudolf (Author)

Planting, by famed landscape architects Piet Oudolf and Noel Kingsbury, is a groundbreaking moment in horticulture. It is the first book to share Oudolf’s original planting plans and plant groupings and the only book to explicitly show how his gardens and landscapes are made.

An intimate knowledge of plants is essential to the success of this approach and Planting makes Oudolf’s considerable understanding of plant ecology and performance accessible, explaining how plants behave in different situations, what goes on underground, and which species make good neighbors. Extensive plant charts and planting plans will help you choose plants for their structure, color, and texture as well as the way they perform in the landscape. A detailed directory, with details each plant’s life expectancy, the persistence of its seedheads, its tendency to spread, and propensity to self-seed, is an invaluable resource.

Planting is an essential resource for designers and gardeners looking to create plant-rich, beautiful gardens that support biodiversity and nourish the human spirit.

Noel Kingsbury, well known as a designer, commentator, and writer on plants, gardens, landscape and environment has played a major role in popularizing a more naturalistic and sustainable planting style since the mid 1990s. His doctorate from the University of Sheffield applied plant ecology science to the selection and management of ornamental perennials and he continues to engage in active research.

Piet Oudolf is among the world’s most innovative garden designers and a leading exponent of naturalistic planting, a style that takes inspiration from nature but employs artistic skill in creating planting schemes. Oudolf’s extensive work over 30 years of practice includes public and private gardens all over the world. He is best known for his work on the High Line and Battery Park in New York, the Lurie Garden in Chicago’s Millennium Park, Potters Field in London, and his own private garden at Hummelo in the Netherlands.
