Gardening with Native Wild Flowers
The authors introduce the reader to the landscape possiblities of plants frequently overlooked, or those wrongly considered to be common and therefore unintersting. Gardeners from just east of the Great Plains to the Atlantic will find detailed information on which plants to use and how to use them. There are extensive plant lists for both shady and sunny garden spots and for boggy sites, as well as chapters on native groundcovers; ferns and fern allies; and grasses, sedges, and rushes. These are complemented by over 200 color photographs to create a beautiful and handy guide.
