by Carole Ottesen

Ottesen covers more than 70 species and varieties of grasses, among them silver feather grass, Job's tears and cow parsnip, in this encyclopedic volume devoted to a popular new trend in gardening. Grasses can do wonders for a rock garden and stay hardy even in 40°F temperatures. Color photos and line drawings enhance this practical guide, which includes suggestions for landscape uses and a good list of sources for seeds and plants. (McGraw-Hill, $29.95)
