Landscape Plants for Dry Regions: More Than 600 Species from Around the World Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The definitive guide to landscaping in the Southwest, featuring exotic plants of tremendous potential seldom used in Southwest landscapes.

Book News Annotation:

Provides detailed information on gardening in warm desert areas and bordering semiarid regions. The authors, one based and one previously based at the University of Arizona, first discuss issues of climate, zone, soil, water-efficiency, finding plants, and planting and cultivation techniques. An A-to-Z of landscape plants and their cultivation requirements and landscape qualities follows. Abundant color photographs are fairly thorough if not always of the highest quality.
