    Would recommend this book to anyone interested in using native plants in Texas. Author describes each region of Texas. The plant list includes color photos catgorized by type of plant(trees, shrubs, etc) then listed by latin name. Common name is also listed for us novices. The author comments on each plant and list the ranges that the plant is native in. Some landscape diagrams are also included.
