Counter Native Trees, Shrubs, and Vines is a comprehensive reference to almost one thousand native woody plants, written in lively, informative prose and illustrated with two hundred photographs. An invaluable guide for gardeners, landscapers, naturalists, restorationists, and nursery owners, it points out the double benefits--to the gardener and to the environment--of "ecological gardening." Native woody plants, even more than wildflowers, are essential in providing the food and shelter that attract butterflies and birds to the garden. (For instance, you can't attract the Pipevine Swallowtail butterfly unless you grow the Dutchman's-Pipe vine.) A propagation chart is included for professionals and others who want to increase their supply of plants.
