Gardening expert Steiner shows you how to select and grow flowers, shrubs and trees that are native to your region, and therefore likely to flourish with less water, maintenance and fertilizer.
She begins by defining indigenous plants and makes an insightful argument for their use in traditional gardens, highlighting their importance to native insects, birds and the local ecosystem.
In addition to advice on controlling invasive species, she includes tables that suggest alternatives to conventional landscaping plants, as well as a catalog of native North American species, each listed with a color photo, hardiness zone, plant height and tips on their care.
Suitable for zones 2 to 10, this is an excellent reference guide.
