About this book

This unique book presents a detailed look at the full scope of flora that is native to the New York City region and available for propagation. Geared specifically for landscape architects, designers, land managers, and restorationists, it offers practical advice on how to increase the amount of indigenous flora growing in the metropolitan area, and in some cases, to reintroduce plants that have completely disappeared. More than one hundred line drawings of plants and their specific habitats, ranging from forests to beaches, help readers visualize the full potential for landscaping in the area.
