Description
This spectacular resource book shows the gardener over 100 low-water-use plants that bring color, beauty and utility to the landscape. With continued national concern over water use, Xeriscape gardens are a sensible option for today and tomorrow. Published in cooperation with Denver Water and the American Water Works Association, and reviewed by professional horticulturalists and landscapers, this fully illustrated reference offers complete information on low-water-use trees and shrubs, perennials and vines, ground covers, annuals, and shade plants. These plants were chosen for their ability to thrive in tough conditions, for their low-water usage and for their potential to add beauty and diversity to any landscape. Whether you have a small patio or terrace, city lot or a bit of acreage, there is more than enough variety in these pages to turn your garden into a place of beauty. All plants are depicted by full-color photographs throughout the seasons, and several garden design possibilities are shown. Botanical illustrations - literally the science of horticulture - add a new dimension, as each artist provides a unique rendering that focuses on the personality of each plant.
