    Book details


There's a growing demand for dependably hardy plants that require less maintenance and less water, but look no less beautiful in the garden. Plant Select - the leading purveyor of plants designed to thrive in difficult climates - meets this need by promoting plants that allow gardeners everywhere to have stunning, environmentally-friendly gardens that use fewer resources. Pretty Tough Plants highlights 135 of Plant Select's top plant picks. Each profile features a colour photograph and specific details about the plant's size, best features, and bloom season, along with cultural needs, landscape features, and design ideas. The plant list includes perennials and annuals, groundcovers, grasses, shrubs, and trees. A chart at the end of the book makes it easy to choose the right plants for specific conditions and needs.

-This gorgeous, information-packed book showcases many great plants that lead to more regionally attuned, environmentally intelligent, and uniquely lovely gardens.- --Lauren Springer Ogden, plantswoman, designer, author -This book is like a crystal ball that reveals how we can all create gorgeous, low-water gardens.- --Panayoti Kelaidis, director of outreach at Denver Botanic Gardens"This gorgeous, information-packed book showcases many great plants that lead to more regionally attuned, environmentally intelligent, and uniquely lovely gardens." --Lauren Springer Ogden, plantswoman, designer, author "This book is like a crystal ball that reveals how we can all create gorgeous, low-water gardens." --Panayoti Kelaidis, director of outreach at Denver Botanic Gardens "An excellent book whose specific American context also provides clues to future British planting as our climate changes." --Gardens Illustrated "A labor of love by a group of passionate plant people." --Denver Botanic Gardens "Anyone looking for drought-tolerant, beautiful plants will appreciate this book. . . . This is a must-have book for anyone making a garden in the intermountain west and other dry areas." --The American Gardener "There are plenty of resources out there that help you find these kinds of plants, but the information is scattered all over the place. That's why I was excited about Pretty Tough Plants. . . . Each plant has its own page (sometimes two), complete with stats like size, flower color and bloom season, preferred position (sun/shade), water requirements, and the kinds of pollinators it attracts. Subsections on "Culture," "Landscape Use," and "Native Range and Origins" provide a concise description of the plant." --Succulents and More"Pretty yet powerful. . . . Make your garden thrive no matter the weather." --Birds & Blooms"Has everything a gardener needs to know." --The Oregonian"With each page I turn it is a 'yes, ' and another 'YES.' This is the guidance I need." --The Bend Bulletin
