Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Gardeners in every state in the union would appreciate a book like this. As it is, however, gardeners of Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas have a treat in store. Describing over 350 species of cacti, trees, shrubs, wildflowers, and vines, Miller leads readers from the ``dreaming stage'' to the ``actual stage'' of choosing, planting, and maintaining native plants. Focusing on what is appropriate for the generally hot and dry climate of the Southwest and emphasizing low costs and simple maintenance, he provides information on landscape design, water and energy conservation, and habitat characteristics. The over 240 good color photos make it easy for gardeners to see the possibilities, and readers will probably start mapping their yards even before putting the book down. Recommended for regional collections.--Katharine Galloway Garstka, Intergraph Corp. , Huntsville, Ala.
