A Tapestry Garden : The Art of Weaving Plants and Place
by Ernie O'Byrne and Marietta O'Byrne and Doreen Wynja


Overview -
"This is a love story about a couple and their relationship with an acre-and-a-half of land. . . with exceptional plant descriptions that read like character references for old friends. . . . beautiful photographs and prose await." --Library Journal

Marietta and Ernie O'Byrne's garden--situated on one and a half acres in Eugene, Oregon--is filled with an incredible array of plants from around the world. By consciously leveraging the garden's many microclimates, they have created a stunning patchwork of exuberant plants that is widely considered one of America's most outstanding private gardens. In A Tapestry Garden, the O'Byrnes share their deep knowledge of plants and essential garden advice. Readers will discover the humble roots of the garden, explore the numerous habitats and the plants that make them shine, and find inspiration in photography that captures the garden's astonishing beauty. There is something here for every type of gardener: a shade garden, perennial borders, a chaparral garden, a kitchen garden, and more. Profiles of the O'Byrne's favorite plants--including hellebores, trilliums, arisaemas, and alpine plants--include comprehensive growing information and tips on pruning and care. A Tapestry Garden captures the spirit of a very special place.
