Great book, very clear.

I live in New Mexico, and I thought this book was going to teach me all I need to know about planting in an unhospitible climate. People have beautiful gardens here, and it's astonishing what flourishes in the dry, hot sun.
I'm a novice gardener who plants with a trial and error sensibility. I ask a lot of questions, move plants around, etc. This book didn't help me at all. I found it confusing, lacking in information, and a basic pain in the rear to sort out.
I would have given it one star, but the pictures are lovely.
Ask a gardener. Leave this book alone.

This book gives a nice overview of groundcovers, floweres, shrubs and bushes, and small trees that will grow in tough conditions. Each plant entry has a series of symbols so it is easy to see at a glance if that plant is suitable for your conditions. The photos of each plant are beautiful. The text is easy to read with descriptions and planting and care directions for each plant. The entries are arranged in alphabetical order by the Latin name making it a little hard to find specific plants. This book has suggestions for about every climat in the continental US, and therefor, does not give indepth guides for very specific climat conditions. I didn't have an idea what to plant, as shown by the dead flowers planted last spring, so I found this book to be a good starting guide. In about 30 minutes time, I found 20 plants that meet my hot, dry, sunny, bad soil conditions in southern Missiouri.
