The Tropical Look: An Encyclopedia of Dramatic Landscape Plants
"The Tropical Look" is a truly unique compendium of nearly 200 plants that evoke languorous landscapes of swaying palms, dripping banana leaves, and vibrant frangi-pani blossoms. However, this book is not just intended for gardeners who live in the tropics; it is also written for those of us who live in the land of freezes and frosts and want to steal a bit of tropical magic. The author draws a clear distinction between tropical plants and "tropical looking," some of which originate on colder climates far from the tropicals but have foliage or flowers that wouldn't look out of place under a Costa Rican sunset or next to a Balinese waterfall.
