Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

When renowned garden writer and horticultural expert Lawrie Metcalf first published The Cultivation of New Zealand Native Grasses in the 1990s it was ahead of its time and sparked a landscaping revolution. Suddenly, all around New Zealand, council landscapers and landscape architects were discovering the joys of our wide range of tussocks and grasses, and mass plantings soon sprang up. Our enthusiasm for these versatile and quintessential Kiwi plants has not diminished, although Metcalfe is pleased to see that the even greater interest in them in the last couple of years has been accompanied by a slightly more intelligent use. His book has been out of print for some time and this Godwit reissue, with revised text, new photos and a repackage as a sister publication to his revised edition of The Propagation of New Zealand Native Plants (published in 2007) puts this invaluable sourcebook back among the gardener community.
