Both the experienced native plant gardener and those wishing to include natives in the landscape will benefit from reading this treatment of so many of our natural national treasures.
Definitely a good book for an overview of why native plants should have a part in gardens as well as what those native plants are, and how to nurture them. Thorough coverage of the topic at hand.
