The desert Southwest is booming, with western counties consistently leading in population growth over the past decade. Yet while the Southwest has plenty of people and plenty of heat and sunshine, water remains at a premium. From Southern California to West Texas, in Arizona and Nevada and New Mexico, homeowners seek new ways to enjoy a lush environment while conserving precious water resources. Plants for Dry Climates is the only book of its kind to cater to this thirsty audience, with information that comprises both good landscape design and essential cultural information for nearly 450 plants. It gives readers all the information they need to plan a complete landscape that includes both mini-oasis features as well as arid-landscape plantings.This revised edition of Plants for Dry Climates provides complete descriptions of more than 350 plant species in an extensive plant encyclopedia section, with entries including description, situational photo, and requirements: zone, soil, sun, water, temperature, and maintenance.
