This extensive and engaging book--the first collaboration between a
Chinese scientist and an American author and herbalist--blends
traditional wisdom from both cultures with scientific verification
of the medical effectiveness of many ancient Chinese plants,
thereby deepening our knowledge of and appreciation for ornamentals
whose usefulness extends far beyond their beauty.
More plants have been introduced from China to American and
European gardens than from any other part of the world.
Many of the Asian species grown as ornamentals--such as daylilies,
forsythia, gardenia, peonies, crape myrtle, and mums--are widely
used in traditional Chinese medicine.
The authors supply specific techniques for cultivating Chinese
herbs and flowers in Western gardens, as well as for using them
