Landscaping with native plants of the Southwest.

Miller, George Oxford.

After making a case for xeriscaping (landscaping with drought- tolerant plants) in the water-challenged southwestern U.S., an environmental photojournalist/nurseryman introduces its landscape zones and the basics of landscaping with cacti, wildflowers, and other native plants. Buddleja (butterfly bush) is not invasive in its home territory. The book includes plant profiles for some 350 species, landscape drawings, color photos, lists of plants for specific purposes, a glossary, and SW and national resources.
