This is the most comprehensive book I've found yet about flower gardening in the desert. Color pictures accompany each entry. Both the botanical and the common names of flowers are listed as well as other pertinent information. I am constantly referring to it. This and Sunset's WESTERN GARDEN BOOK are my bibles for gardening in the desert.
This book has given me much needed insight to gardening. From planning to preparation and maintaining in arid enviornments of the Western United States. Very colorful photographs with decriptions which are easy to follow. A good quality book.
