As the world heats up and we become more and more conscious of our
place in the natural scheme, the appeal of the native plants of the
Southwest becomes ever more compelling for gardeners. In addition
to providing year-round beauty with relatively little maintenance,
landscaping with native plants contributes to the repair of the
natural ecosystem and brings us closer to our environment--and the
array of native plant material available to the Southwestern
gardener is diverse and spectacular, providing seemingly endless
opportunities for creative and attractive landscapes.In Landscaping
with Native Plants of the Southwest, George Oxford Miller provides
the definitive guide to choosing the best of the best among the
native plants of Arizona and New Mexico. Covering wildflowers,
shrubs, trees, vines, groundcovers, and cacti, this comprehensive,
richly illustrated book selects the species whose ornamental
qualities, growth habit, adaptability, maintenance needs, and
beauty add up to the highest landscape value. The illustrations,
maps, and charts provide guidelines for species selection and
planting, ongoing maintenance, landscape design, and water and
energy conservation. In-depth plant profiles describe the habitat
requirements for more than 350 native plant species, subspecies,
and varieties, with lush photographs illustrating how each plant
looks and responds to landscape conditions.As the interest in
native-plant landscaping and xeriscaping continues to grow, this
book will find a place on the shelf of every gardener and
landscaper in the region--or of anybody interested in recreating
the beauty of the Southwest in a hot, dry corner of the yard.
