Black is not the first color that comes to mind when you think of plants. But as this beautiful guide makes clear, dark-hued leaves and flowers, from perennials to tropicals, have enormous appeal in a garden. Martha Stewart Living 20091001 This little gem of a book packs a planter's punch. ... If you never grow a single plant highlighted, it's still a fascinating read. -- Kylee Baumle Our Little Acre blog 20091008 Someday, I shall create the black-and-white themed garden I have been dreaming of; when I do, Black Plants will become muddy and dog-eared. -- Linda Beutler Pacific Horticulture 20091001 This whimsical collection ! is beautiful to behold. -- Ami McKay Canada 20091001 Something that strange and surreal has to be a part of Halloween.

Sagers Deseret News 20091026 Black works great for cocktail dresses and luxury cars, but in the flower garden? Absolutely. -- Deb Wandell San Francisco Chronicle 20091025 Despite some highly evocative names, this haunting book isn't just a Halloween treat. Dark foliage and flowers offer great opportunities for contrast, depth and focal points in the garden. -- Nancy Schoeffler Hartford Courant 20091023 I wish I could say I was always intrigued by the dozens of gardening books publishers send our way ... but every once in a while, I'll get a gardening book that I read cover to cover, such as Paul Bonine's little book called Black Plants. -- Kim Brown Tulsa World 20091024 Rather than cast gloom, these plants can add mystery, depth, and sophistication to the garden. -- Kathy Huber Houston Chronicle 20091024 Go ahead, open the cover, creep through the screeching gate. The plants inside are no nightmare. More like a dream. -- Kym Pokorny Oregonian 20091029 Bonine is making the point that these deeply pigmented plants are striking additions to the ordinary run of garden bed and container choices, but the creepy factor is irresistible. -- Valerie Sudol Newark Star-Ledger 20091029 Some of the names are frightening, but their stories are enlightening. -- T. J. Banes Indianapolis Star 20091031 Black generally has a negative connotation, a signal that all is not well with a plant. Paul Bonine has set out to salvage black's horticultural reputation with Black Plants. -- Renee Enna Chicago Tribune 20091030 Your garden might never be the same. -- Mary Beth Breckenridge Akron Beacon Journal 20091030 Every once in a while a book is published that fills an empty niche. With Black Plants, finding dark leaved and dark flowering examples doesn't need to be a mystery anymore. -- Fran Durner Anchorage Daily News 20091029 If you want to add dark blooms for contrast in your garden, grow some very novel plants, or plant an entire garden with a dark color theme, Black Plants is a great resource to have on hand. -- Carol Michel May Dreams Gardens blog 20091030 Gardeners and plant lovers looking for ideas for distinct color schemes and exciting plant suggestions will appreciate this. -- Phillip Oliver Library Journal 20091101 Even if you never grow a black or even a brown plant, the book is still an entertaining look at nature's oddballs, and a great gift choice for anyone who loves plants. -- Elizabeth Licata Buffalo Spree Magazine 20091201 If you're looking for something with an exotic twist for your garden, check out Paul Bonine's eye-catching little book of black plants. -- Jodi Delong Halifax Chronicle Herald 20091206 An invaluable guide for those leaning towards the opinion that black is the new green. -- Nicholas Spencer Financial Times 20091017 The addition of these striking shrubs, perennials and annuals will add depth and drama to the landscape. -- Nancy Szerlag Detroit News 20091211

Needs more plants 20. Oktober 2009
Von abezon - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This is a nice book for someone who's thinking of creating a black garden or looking for a few really interesting accent plants. It lost one star because there's no index & I'd have like another 25 plants. The author gives the mature size of some plants, but not all. Light & water requirements are represented by 4 & 3 pictographs respectively. It's a bit like reading an international clothing care tag, but you get used to it. The plant photos tend towards macro shots, so you'll need to find find more pictures elsewhere if you want to see the plant structure.

first book I've returned in years. 3. Dezember 2009
Von Jen - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I'm sorry, I really am, but this book is a major disappointment. There are hundreds more plants than these out in the world if you are really interested in dark or black foliage, and the images in this book are almost exclusively closeups of the flowers or foliage with zero examples of those plants in action in a planting. You'd get better results googling "black plants" or "black flowers" or "balck foliage" than by buying this book. I expected better from Timber Press, I usually drool all over their books!

I haven't returned a book to amazon or any other seller for many years, but this one didn't last 10 minutes out of the box before I printed the return label. I kid you not.

If all you want are a few closeup photos and some less-than-useful nomenclature. For example, Helleborus x hybridus is a large group of cultivars and colors - many more than than the disappointing black specimen in the photo. Good luck finding the dark flowering plant shown using the name "Helleborus x. hybridus").

This little book packs a planter's punch! 9. Oktober 2009
Von K. Baumle - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
A few years ago, it became fashionable to create a Chocolate Garden, a trend that continues to be popular. Plants grown in a Chocolate Garden have a chocolate fragrance and/or have very dark blooms or foliage in tones of deep purple, brown, burgundy, maroon, or near-black.

A great resource book for planning such a garden is the newly-published Black Plants: 75 Striking Choices for the Garden by Paul Bonine. (Timber Press, September 2009) This little gem of a book packs a planter's punch by giving essential information on 75 stunning plants that would be appropriate for creating either a themed garden or a smaller pocket of attraction.

With each plant description, characteristics are provided that aid in making choices for the garden: soil conditions, hardiness zones, growth habits and light requirements. Suggestions are given for companion plantings that show off each plant's unique traits. On the page facing each description is a beautiful photograph of the plant.

Growing plants with such dark colors could be seen as gloomy and unexciting, but when paired with contrasting colors such as lime green, a very dramatic effect can be obtained. Black Plants provides the necessary information to create such drama, but if you never grow a single plant highlighted in this book, it's still a fascinating read.

Cool, but unrealistic 23. November 2010
Von M. R. Nelson - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
The plants shown herein are really cool. Very striking in their colour. The downside is that not very many of them could be used in colder areas. I wish I knew ahead of time that I would need greenhouses for the very best plants in this book.

If you live in a year-around warm area, it might be worth it, otherwise, pick up a copy at the library before buying it.
