Editorial Reviews


If you want to plant a garden that attracts hummingbirds and identify them when they arrive, Marcy Scott s Hummingbird Plants of the Southwest is surely the definitive book on the subject. Illustrated with superb macro photography of hummingbird and plant species, the book s expertly researched plant profiles draw on the author s deep experience. The plant selections include familiar favorites such as Salvia and Penstemon, but also plants far beyond the usual suspects. I m excited to try some of these, such as Townsend s sage and woolly blue curls, in my own garden this coming year. --Scott Calhoun, author of Yard Full of Sun

Few books have been written to help those wanting to attract hummers to their Southwest gardens. This book is a welcome addition and is the most in-depth look at plant opportunities yet published.... Whether you are a gardener or hummingbird lover (or maybe both!), this book should be in your library. --H. Ross Hawkins, The Hummingbird Connection

Exceptional, practical, informed informative, and thoroughly user friendly, [this book] is profusely and beautifully illustrated in full color. An ideal introduction and guide, Hummingbird Plants Of The Southwest is very highly recommended for personal, professional, community, and academic library...collections. --Margaret Lane, Midwest Book Review

Scott uses skill, humor, and information to help us recognize the loss of habitat that can be attributed to our kind, and gently urges us to do our own little part to reverse some of the bad. --Renee West, Newsletter of the Native Plant Society of New Mexico

I learned several tidbits from this book which I had not known. [This] is a great reference book as well as a guide to setting up your hummingbird habitat. Recommended if you wish to attract hummingbirds. --Southern Arizona Guide

You get a bouquet of books rolled into one when you pick this one up...Indeed, the whole thing, from photos, to species profiles, to the glossary, to the appendix on ways to help a natural history masterpiece. -- --Mark Pendleton, Not All Those Who Wander Are Lost

Bird lovers in the hummingbird-rich Southwest finally have their own comprehensive guide to creating nectar gardens for these living jewels. --Sheri L. Williamson, author of A Field Guide to Hummingbirds of North America

For Southwest habitat gardeners, especially gardens focused on pollinators, this book is an excellent resource for attracting hummingbirds. The author discusses how hummingbirds are great pollinators since they feed all day, reliably visit flowers year-round, and travel great distances which enhances the genetic variability in the seeds of the plants they visit.... For readers who may have no land or ambition to create a habitat garden, this book is still a pleasure to read. The photographs are superb; the author's writing style is colorful; and the layout of the book is very pleasing. The book encourages the reader to become an armchair field biologist, vicariously observing the foraging hummingbirds defend their territories, construct their nests, and pass between their winter and summer homes. ----Karen LeMay, Founder of Pollinator Corridors SW; Arizona Native Plant Society

It is a beautiful book and should make a welcome addition to the library of all who admire hummingbirds. I am a life long birder and greatly enjoyed the sections on the birds. I find that like plants there is always more to learn about them. --Mary Irish, author of A Place All Our Own: Lives Entwined in a Desert Garden

From the Back Cover

Hummingbirds and plants have co-evolved. These little flying jewels need nectar and shelter, while many native plants need to be pollinated by the birds. Hummingbird fanciers along their migration routes can enjoy the flower/bird show and even help species threatened by loss of habitat with wise landscape choices. It's easy. Just add hummingbird-friendly native plants to your garden, and take some simple steps to enhance the habitat in your yard and beyond. Here, Marcy Scott provides a wealth of guidance. 120 plant profiles, with detailed information on their significance to hummingbirds, distribution, known habitat, and appearance Plant-focused profiles of the 14 regularly occurring hummingbird species Hummingbird natural history, plant pollination, and how and why to create habitat Tips on landscaping, finding plants, and gardening in the Southwest 15 ways you can help hummingbirds and their flowers
