As a transplanted yankee, I didn't know much about what to plant (and what NOT to plant) in Texas. After wasting too much time and energy planting the wrong things, I finally found this book (Reccommended by a local gardening expert) and I now have a green thumb! If you ever bought plants and wondered what they'd look like grown, this book has photos of almost every plant it mentions (including trees and shrubs). Mr. Garrett tells you when to plant, how to plant, where to plant, and even tells you which ones NOT to plant! Our xeriscaped gardens have him to thank.
