An interesting book, Ms. Wasowski gives us pause when she explains at the beginning why many songbirds and butterflies are endangered. She refers to their habitat, including what they should eat. Planning your native garden to include these concerns is just one of the many topics she covers. I would have loved if the author included any cultivars of the native plant with a minor description.

This is a nice book for the pictures and descriptions but it falls far short if you want to use if for reference. Some basic things seem to be missing -- Gallardia for one. But the real problem is that the Index is terrible and that's the crux of it's weakness for reference. Things like holly and beautyberry are listed under A for American Holly, American beautyberry. Honeysuckle is under C for Coral Honeysuckle instead of H for Honeysuckle, Coral. And at first I thought dogwood wasn't even in the book but after all it is there but in the index it doesn't come under D, it's under F for Flowering Dogwood. It follows the common names with the latin names but doing the opposite (or both) is a lot more helpful because cornus florida is there but if the common name followed it, it would be clearer and even help beginners learn some of these latin names. In some cases this is done but it's random and seems sloppy because it's just not consistent.

If some serious work was done on the index this could be a good reference.

Very nicely arranged information, good pictures. Some information re: cultivars may be a little out of date, but definitely worth owning. Has many photos of established gardens, pointing out both natives and non-natives, for inspiration.

Not only is this a compendium of examples of native plants, the photographs are outstanding. The author, as a landscape designer, also adds salient comments that add to the understanding of the plant and its visual utility in the garden. But my most favored attribute of the book, well after she describes each plants propagation, leaf and seed structure etc. light and moisture requirements, are her comments on the special attributes of that particular plant.. comments not generally available in a traditional (and boring) plant compendium. This is a must read book for both experienced native plant lovers and those interested in learning more about native plants and how they will fit into your landscape .

I had this book in hardback an wanted it for my iPad so I could work on garden planning and design when traveling, away from my desk, etc. This book is go to if you want to go native and live anywhere deep south to mid south.

I have a lot of gardening books. This is the best book I have seen as a resource on native southern plants. I purchased the kindle edition, and the color pictures are good and useful for identifying plants. I really loved this book. It has information about where plants grow, soil conditions--everything one needs to incorporate more plants into the garden that are likely to thrive where one lives.

The information about shade/sun, growth, size, color, and so on is all there for each plant in an easy-to-read style, but the extra bit that sold me on this book is the plant's use by wildlife. It's specific to bird and animal, such as hummingbirds, mice, deer, song birds, or shelter for lizards. The descriptive paragraphs under each plant are very helpful, with the author's experience and opinion. And of course, the photographs are gorgeous and show the plants in an appropriate environment. I highly recommend this book.

As a master gardener, living in South Carolina in the Charlotte metropolitan region, I find "Gardening with Native Plants of the South" a very readable and helpful book. Many books and articles about native plants focus more of the macro issues: Dangers of invasive plants, effects on birdlife, etc. This book focuses more on the plants themselves. I found it especially helpful that plants are grouped according to use (e.g. "Evergreen Trees Over 50 Feet Tall," "Tall Shrubs 10 to 15 Feet Tall," etc.)
Each tree, shrub or vine is illustrated by a color photo and a description of unique features, plus details on where it is likely to thrive. Finally, Sally W. shares personal insights about why she loves a certain tree, etc. Lots of info conveyed in useful but personable format
For any gardener who has struggled against nature, only to be disappointed again and again, Sally Wasowski offers guided instruction on how to work WITH nature. The results are not only beautiful and rewarding, but we gardeners are invited to gain a sense of place by learning of the rich botanical bounty of our own locale. Ms. Wasowski provides glossy color photos to acquaint us with plants which may be new to us. She describes well the growing habits and needs of the plants, as well as good companion plants and the wildlife likely to be drawn.

This book is a treasure for those who have discovered or would like to dabble in the joy of native plant gardening.
