Publisher Comments:

This new edition of Native Plants for High-Elevation Western Gardens is an invaluable guide to native plants for gardeners who live in the high-altitude regions of the American West (5,000 feet and above). Despite such challenges as weather extremes and water shortages, these 150 plants are low-maintenance favorites, having been carefully cultivated and tested by the staff of the Arboretum at Flagstaff in Arizona. Plants included are perennials, grasses, bulbs, vines, ferns, and ground covers, providing a wide variety of options for both the novice and seasoned gardener.

Native Plants includes the following:

  • Comprehensive information on how to plant and nurture each species, as well as how to maintain your native garden
  • Full-color photographs of each plant
  • Descriptions detailing the natural history, features, and cultivation information
  • Sidebars about unusual plants, an annotated zone map, reading list, and list of native plant sources

Janice Busco has twenty-five years of experience with Western native plants as an environmental horticulturist, consultant, and educator. She is an active member of the Arizona Native Plant Society and the International Plant Propagation Society. Busco lives and gardens in Arizona.

Nancy R. Morin was director of the Arboretum at Flagstaff for five years, and before that was assistant director of the Missouri Botanical Garden and executive director of the American Association of Botanical Gardens and Arboreta. Morin has been one of the major editors for Flora of North America for more than twenty-five years.
