Riassunto: For gardeners who want to conserve water, the color, fragrance, shade, and lush vegetation of a traditional garden may seem like a mirage in the desert. But such gardens can flourish when native desert plants grow in them. In this book, Judy Mielke, an expert on Southwestern gardening, offers the most comprehensive guide to landscaping with native plants available. Writing simply enough for beginning gardeners, while also providing ample information for landscape professionals, she presents over three hundred trees, shrubs, vines, grasses, groundcovers, wildflowers, cacti, and other plants particularly suited to arid landscapes. The heart of the book lies in the complete descriptions and beautiful color photographs of plants native to the Mojave, Sonoran, and Chihuahuan desert regions of the southwestern United States and northern Mexico. Judy Mielke characterizes each plant's foliage, flowers, fruits, and mature sizes. She gives detailed information on its natural habitat, its water, soil, light, temperature, and pruning requirements, and its possible uses in landscape design. In addition to this specific growing information, Mielke includes informative discussions of the ecology of the three deserts, general growing instructions for native plants and wildflowers, and "how-to" ideas for revegetation of disturbed desert areas using native plants. She concludes the book with an extensive list of plants by type, including those that have specific features such as shade or fragrance. She also supplies a list of public gardens that showcase native plants. Designed for everyone from beginning gardeners to landscape architects, designers, and maintenance personnel, Native Plants forSouthwestern Landscapes will be as indispensable in the garden as a shovel or a wheelbarrow.
L'autore: Judy Mielke of Tempe, Arizona, is a landscape designer who also teaches courses on the use of Southwestern native plants.
