The Bible of Native Plants
While I wait for spring to arrive, I’ve been spending some time reading up on the many wonderful native perennials, shrubs, and trees for the southeastern U.S. This book is quickly becoming a favorite of mine:
It starts off by discussing the importance of preserving our native plants, and the role that wildlife gardens play in our ecosystems, then gets into great detail about the various families of native plants (hollies, magnolias, maples, etc.) including growing information. I highly commend this book to anyone interested in planting native!
