   A MUST HAVE FOR ANYONE PLANNING TO "NATURESCAPE"!
It is a coffee table book sized, but has very useful information for anyone who wants to grow native plants. Each plant listing has an extensive description with grading of 1 -- 4 stars, with 4 stars being outstanding plants. For invasive plants, Cautions are given. There are notes on the propagation, habitat, zone and other pertinent notes. Informational! Very Informational ''. I love it and use it often.

   A great reference book!
It is important to me to include more native plants for wildlife and pollinators in our home landscape. This book has more plants than I have seen in our local nurseries. The number of small post-It notes I've tagged for plants I like makes it really difficult to turn the pages. But I'll have to keep looking and looking at it before buying plants. Very helpful photos - full images, close-ups with specific growth requirements, and planting zone IDs for each. The hardback cover makes it a little heavier to hold in one's lap, but it will keep it for a long time on my shelf.

   Great pictures, difficult index
The pictures are great, descriptions are good, but the index is very difficult! Can 't just find elm or Camilla, so hard to find anything! Not for the novice, all plants and flowers are listed by genus and species, so that you have to be a horticulturist to navigate.

   Great book - Poor binding, Failed on our first few openings of the book
Great book, but the spine separated after opening the book only a few times. We are trying to find a way to replace it with . This has never happened to any of our books over the last 50 years... ODD : Well, I tried everything on Amazon, which does not make it easy to contact or chat with a real person. We'd like to exchange the book for one that is not defective, but NOBODY exists on Amazon to talk to. Don 't buy the book until the binding issue is resolved. We are looking into new glues to try to repair our brand's binding book.

   Great book and seller
We moved from our completely remodeled California home to a fixer-upper in Georgia and are beginning from scratch inside and out so I needed to know what will grow in this area. The book is beautiful and the book is full of wonderful information. It arrived earlier than expected and was wonderfully packaged. Product and seller recommend highly!

   The best book I've found so far on SE native plants
This is the best book I have found so far on SE native plants. Many species are covered, including a good write-up on each and beautiful photos, though too many of the pictures are extreme closeups so that I can not see the form of the plant. My biggest complaint is that the common plant criteria are not presented as clearly as I'd like. I'd prefer to find basic info, e.g. Sunshade, height-wildlife uses, irrigation needs, etc-at a glance ideally with symbols. It does provide ratings for each plant variety from 1 to five stars, which is my favorite feature of the book. My other complaint is that I sometimes have to hunt for the photo that matches the text. They should be better aligned. Still, it is the best book on SE natives that I have.

   A very comprehensive easy to use book
A very comprehensive and easy to use book. I love the ranked system based on use in a personal garden. Each of the plants are ranked on year round attractiveness, ease of acquisition, how easy they are to grow, whether they transplant well, etc. It also delves into the diversity of the native plant system of the South East as well as our various microclimates and conditions, that some gardens may be better than others.
