Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Arizona Republic, 2/12/13“My go-to book for information about all plants desert and desert-adapted.” 
Booknews
Provides detailed information on gardening in warm desert areas and bordering semiarid regions. The authors, one based and one previously based at the University of Arizona, first discuss issues of climate, zone, soil, water-efficiency, finding plants, and planting and cultivation techniques. An A-to-Z of landscape plants and their cultivation requirements and landscape qualities follows. Abundant color photographs are fairly thorough if not always of the highest quality. Annotation c.
