Wildflower Gardens: Sixty Spectacular Plants and How to Grow Them in Your Garden

The wildflower garden is evidence of a new garden aesthetic based on regional landscapes and plants, a blend of nature and nurture, and a partnership between a gardener and the forces of nature. Each home landscape is part of the system and each gardener has a part to play. Ecology can be beautiful.
