An interesting book, Ms. Wasowski gives us pause when she explains at the beginning why many songbirds and butterflies are endangered. She refers to their habitat, including what they should eat. Planning your native garden to include these concerns is just one of the many topics she covers.

Gardening with Native Plants of the South by Sally Wasowski, Andy Wasowski (Taylor Trade Publishing 1994)(635.95175).

My rating: 7.5/10, finished 1997.

Am enjoying this book immensely, many useful gardening tips. Lots of my favorite plants are in the book and a few that I have on my want to get list after reading the book.
This is a useful book--it helped me to both identify existing plants and see how native plants can be put together to form natural habitat in my yard.
Good photos of plants, trees, shrubs and vines. More detail could have been put into how to develop your native garden.
Clear and informative with good pictures.
