The only book on ornamental plants dedicated to the remarkably cold-hardy and arid-adapted native species of Trans-Pecos Texas. The potential of these trees, shrubs, succulents, cacti, and grasses for use in the landscape, both within and beyond the borders of their native habitats, has been only superficially tapped. Yuccas, Ceniza, Texas Mountain Laurel, and Salvias are already familiar to native plant enthusiasts. But hundreds of essentially unknown plants with ornamental potential await discovery, propagation, trial, establishment in the nursery trade. You will find them treated here.
