An invaluable guide for the general reader, gardener, and homeowner, as well as for professional landscapers, horticulturists, and others in the nursery industry. This comprehensive volume provides specific information about shrubs, trees, grasses, and forbs native to most states in the Intermountain West that can be used in landscaping to conserve water, reflect and preserve the region's landscape character, and help protect its ecological integrity. Thirty years ago, native plants and water conservation were topics pursued by only a small, dedicated group of native plant enthusiasts and conservationists. Today, these subjects are of vital interest to a much larger segment of the region's population. Cities, offices, homeowners, and agriculture alike are affected by the growing shortage of water, especially during the current drought. They need specific, reliable plant information, along with help in matching plant choices with growing conditions, functional needs, and aesthetic goals. Water Wise is both convenient and comprehensive. The heart of the book presents hundreds of species, devoting a full page to each, with a description of appearance, habitat, landscape use, and other comments. Four-color photographs illustrate each plant described. A reader-friendly introduction provides important background on the ecology of the Intermountain West, along with full descriptions of native plant habitats and associations. Appendices include charts on associations, best uses in landscaping, and hardiness zones. An accessible resource of accurate native plant information for all readers, Water Wise will be indispensable to professional landscapers and amateurs alike.
