In this book, Jan Wrede has compiled a field guide to more than 125 species of mostly native, mostly woody plants of the Texas Hill Country. A thoughtful introduction discusses deer, cedar, water, oak wilt, and invasive species—timely issues of increasing importance for a growing number of Texas landowners. Plant descriptions contain information about the leaves, flowers, fruit, and bark of each plant and also give insights into the species’ range and habits. A color photograph accompanies each account.
Especially useful is a comprehensive plant chart with tips about color, scent, flowering period, height, site preference, and wildlife and livestock utilization. A recommended reading list, a resource guide, and a glossary round out this information-packed book.
— Shannon Graff Hysell
"Along with the beautiful photographs the book provides a detailed plant chart, a list of resources, a glossary, references, and an index. Trees, Shrubs, and Vines of the Texas Hill Country is highly recommended for the botany and horticulture collections of academic and public libraries in the southern United States." - Shannon Graff Hysell, American Reference Books Annual
