In today’s South, where gardening is a tradition, homeowners and professional gardeners are discovering a vast “new” palette of plants – native plants. Many discovered them in the pages of this best selling book. 

Wherever you live in the South – along the Gulf Coast or in the Piedmont, in woodlands or savannas or bayous, from Maryland down into the Florida Panhandle, from the Carolinas to East Texas – this informative and easily accessible book profiles the best adapted plants for your area and tells you how to create beautiful, environment-friendly and low-maintenance landscapes. If you’re a Southern gardener, this is one book y’all really need!

“This book is an excellent reference…a re-education for gardeners who think that only hybrids and imported plants belong in gardens.”

Carolina Gardener Magazine

“I was going to plant another crepe myrtle, but thanks to the Wasowskis’ book I’m considering a dozen or more alternatives – all native and all more exciting. Now I have a dilemma; I have to choose.”

Linda C. Askey, Southern Living Magazine

“Tired of labor-intensive gardening? Ready to switch over to ruggedly beautiful, low-maintenance native plants? Southern homeowners and commercial landscapers will find this book easy to read and fascinatingly informative.”

Jim Wilson, Author and Former Host of ‘The Victory Garden’

The Wasowskis have once-again produced an exceptional native plant gardening book that is rich with information and creative ideas.”
