A resource for all gardeners, it includes chapters on the history, climate, and care of plants, as well as weeds, annuals, perennials, bulbs, succulents/cactus, and shrubs. It also contains lists of other well-adapted plants beyond those in the 50 species profiled.

So useful to have a gardening book specific for my area! That way I don't spend my time pining over peonies or hoping for hibiscus that I can't grow here. Read full review
