Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Few parts of America have as many native plants that excel in the garden as the Pacific Northwest. But until this year, there wasn't a comprehensive book on the subject. Now there is: Gardening With Native Plants of the Pacific Northwest...The main body of the book is divided into encyclopedic sections on trees, shrubs, and herbaceous perennials, including information about where they grow in the wild, how to propagate them, and how they fit into home gardens...This book contains so much well-organized, well-written material that it should become a standard guidebook for anyuone who gardens with Northwest natives." -Sunset

"All in all, this is a fascinating book, full of reliable information." -The Garden Journal of the Royal Horticultural Society

"Professor Kruckeberg is a botanist at the University of Washington who has specialized in the flora of the Pacific Northwest for over thirty years. This summary of his experience, with plants in the wild and in gardens, will be referred to with pleasure for years, not only for the value of its information but also for the easy style and quiet humor of its presentation." -Pacific Horticulture

"Arthur Kruckenberg has provided his attractive, literate, and useful book just as the native-plant movement is gathering great momentum. As he writes, 'The largely untapped potential of gardening with Northwest natives needs to become a way of life for those who look to the plant for beauty and serenity.' That goes for anywhere." -Horticulture
