Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

As we see exotic plants becoming invasive exotics, gardeners are seeking native plants for their gardens. Plants that withstand regional conditions and weather patterns deliver a hardier garden and require less maintenance.

A pioneering book when first published in 1999, this revised edition is a classic reference that meets the requirements of a changing, tougher landscape. Lorraine Johnson provides a fail-safe guide to beautiful low-maintenance plants native to many regions of the United States. The features include: Handy profiles of each native plantMaintenance requirementsCreative suggestions for plant pairingsPropagation and cultivation tipsIndex of plants by botanical nameEthical guidelines for gardenersUpdated list of sources.

Especially useful are the quick-reference charts that show plants grouped by region, habitat and conditions, for example plants that tolerate dry soil in shade and plants that attract butterflies. A color photograph of each plant makes it easy to compare options and choose the right plant.
