Format: Paperback
I just finished reading this book and it was a delight! More than just a reference book, it is chock full of excellent information on origins, habitat, usage, reliability and much more. The suggestions and advice from Mr. Smith, who has been a plant enthusiast for so long, really hit the mark. The style is so friendly without a bit of condescension.

There is nothing dry or distant about the book. It bursts with the excitment of discovery, knowledge and the adventure of plant hunting, growing and then selecting. If one is even a little bit curious about the amazing native plants of the west, this book is for you. It is a book to go back to again and again for suggestions and information.

I read it over four cloudy days and couldn't wait to get outside and see for myself the beauty and wonder of our native plants.

Format: Paperback
What really stands out in this book is the analysis for each plant species. Several varieties and hybrids of the species are listed and best location and cultural needs for each. In spite of all the technical information the book is an easy read.

This book has a lot of information on plants for Calif. I would have liked to see more on hardiness, deer, and fire resistance. but other wise this book has a lot going for it..

I got it to help me give preference to Ca natives and to know about needs for water and sun, plant size, etc. Great resource.Of course lots of the info would apply for gardeners in other Mediterranean climates, but I hope gardeners elsewhere will find out about their own natives.
