Native Plants For Your Maine Garden

We’ve all heard about the benefits of buying local—now the move is on to plant local, and it makes sense. Today, gardeners are increasingly using native plants because these species are cold hardy, disease resistant, noninvasive, and attractive to wildlife.

Written for home gardeners, this book covers flowering perennials, foliage perennials, grasses, groundcovers, shrubs, and trees. It also discusses how to choose the right plants for varying locations and cope with shallow-ledge soils, coastal sea spray, boggy and moist soils, and woodland conditions, and which plants are least attractive to deer. Includes two sample garden designs, one for a full-sun butterfly and bird native plant garden and one for a lightly shaded woodland-type border.
