An Illustrated Guide to the Native Plant Garden by Susan Carpenter

During most years, March converts a drab winter landscape to one with hints of growth and color. As a preview of the coming growing season, this illustrated tour traces the native plant garden into spring and beyond. You’ll see many of the plants that FOA offers in their plant sale pre-orders (due March 22) and combinations offered in the garden mixes. For more in-depth information about each plant, I recommend Spring Wildflowers of the Arboretum and Prairie Plants of the Arboretum, both available at the Arboretum Bookstore along with other guides.
