  Garden Bookworm editor's notes:  
Ornamental grasses are at home in a mixed border or as striking individual specimens. They adapt to a wide range of climates and soils, need little or no maintenance, and resist most pests and diseases. They can anchor a slope or live happily in a container. They are also new to many gardeners, for whom this book will be both an introduction and a very practical guide, with its 165 full-color photos of landscape ideas and portraits of the best grasses for any site - wet or dry, sunny or shady.

This is a great little book with color photos. I use my AHS encyclopedia for most plant information, but rely on the Taylor's guide for grasses. It has reliable cultivation information and I haven't bought a grass yet that wasn't listed.
