Plants and Landscapes for Summer Dry Climates

$34.95

The inspiration for the Summer-Dry book in the PhotoBotanic Learning Center, this beautiful 320-page book features more than 650 native Californian and Mediterranean plants photographed in garden settings. It showcases landscaping in summer-dry climates such as the West Coast of California and other Mediterranean regions of the world.

If we are to promote sustainable garden practices in California and other summer-dry climates we need to change the aesthetic of what we expect to see in a garden photograph to give gardeners a new way of considering beauty in gardens.
