Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Xeriscape Plant Guide is a full-color, comprehensive resource for more than 100 low-water-use plants that bring color, beauty and utility to your landscape. This is the Bible on plants for water-wise gardens!

With continued national concern over water use, Xeriscape gardens are a sensible option for today and tomorrow. Published in cooperation with Denver Water and the American Water Works Association, and reviewed by professional horticulturalists and landscapers, this fully illustrated reference offers complete information on low-water-use trees and shrubs, annuals and shade plants. These plants were chosen for their ability to thrive in tough conditions, for their low water usage and for their potential to add beauty and diversity to any landscape. Whether you have a small patio or terrace, city lot or a bit of acreage, there is more than enough variety in these pages to turn your garden into a place of beauty.

Xeriscape can be considered water-smart gardening or environmentally friendly planting, but the main theory behind it is to grow plants that thrive in our specific regions and soils. Inside the pages of the Xeriscape Plant Guide, you will find a vast array of plants ideally suited for gardens of North America, both familiar and less recognizable, that require minimal supplemental irrigation, that can cope with fluctuations in temperature, and that resist disease and pests.

All the plants in this book are depicted by full-color photographs throughout the seasons, and several garden design possibilities are shown. Botanical illustrations-literally the science of horticulture-add a new dimension, as each artist provides a unique rendering that focuses on the personality of each plant.
