Armitage's native plants for North American gardensUser Review - Book Verdict
Internationally known horticulturalist Armitage (Univ. of Georgia, Athens) has written a book that will address the recent soaring interest in native plants. There is expert yet practical information on more than 630 native species and cultivars of perennials, biennials, and annuals that are readily available to mainstream gardeners. The plants are listed by genus (Aconitum to Zizia ) along with the following information: Latin, common, and family name; height and width; habitat; USDA hardiness zones (map not included); recommended garden site and maintenance; and propagation. Native American medicinal uses are included for some plants with the caveat to employ common sense. Personal anecdotes and a sense of humor enliven the text, and 12 lists of plants suitable for various needs and situations, e.g., rabbit-resistant plants, are useful. A "Sources and Resources" section provides lists of nurseries for native plants, plant societies, Internet sites, and books. With more than 400 color photos, this is an essential reference book for nursery people and horticulturalists, home gardeners, and all libraries.- Nancy Myers, Univ. of South Dakota Lib., Vermillion
