Since its first publication in 1986, How to Grow Native Plants of Texas and the Southwest has set the standard for both home and professional gardeners. Written when the native plant movement was just getting started, it helped convert a generation of gardeners to the practical and aesthetic values of using drought-tolerant plants in southwestern landscapes.

In this new edition, Jill Nokes has extensively rewritten every section to include the latest information on the production, cultivation, and landscape use of native plants. She has added over 75 new species and updated the propagation and care information for the original 350 species of trees, shrubs, and woody vines. In addition to the individual plant descriptions, she also devotes whole chapters to gathering and storing seeds, seed germination, planting, vegetative propagation, and transplanting. With this wealth of clearly presented, easy-to-reference information, How to Grow Native Plants of Texas and the Southwest will remain the last word on this subject.

About the Author:

Jill Nokes has a landscape design and consulting practice in Austin, Texas, where she and her associates work with architects, builders, homeowners, new landowners, and schools to create landscape designs that reflect the local region and thrive with a minimum of resources, especially water.

Review:

From reviews of the first edition: "Nokes draws upon many unpublished observations by experienced propagators, which should keep many gardeners from trial-and-error inquiries of their own... This attractive, clearly written landscape-materials guide will fill a large gap in western horticultural literature and should serve as a model for other regional guides." -Horticulture
