Synopsis

Bamboo and its many varieties are becoming ever more popular as a design material for landscapes, squares, and gardens. With its widely varying hardiness, height, and leaf structure, the grass can be cultivated under many different conditions, and because of its special physical characteristics it can also be used as a material in related domains such as architecture, furniture design, and flower arrangement.



The extensive technical section of the book describes the properties and habitat requirements of the plant, the breeding of varieties, and the methods of propagation. It then goes on to explore its use and significance in urban and natural settings. Authors with technical expertise in the relevant fields, including the director of the Oprins bamboo tree nursery, and striking color illustrations convey exhaustive technical and botanical information and examples of the creative use of bamboo, especially in urban and natural settings.
