This new edition is an invaluable guide to native plants for gardeners who live in the high-altitude regions of the American West (5,000 feet and above). Despite such challenges as weather extremes and water shortages, these 150 plants are hardy, low-maintenance favorites, having been carefully cultivated and tested by the staff of The Arboretum at Flagstaff in Arizona. With updated content and more than sixty new photographs, this important reference provides an ample supply of options for both the novice and seasoned gardener to create a beautiful and robust high-elevation garden.

This guide includes the following highlights: a well-balanced variety of perennials, grasses, bulbs, vines, ferns, and ground covers; comprehensive information on how to plant, nurture, and maintain each species; descriptions detailing the natural history, features, and cultivation information for each plant; full-color photographs showing each plant in detail as well as in a landscaped setting; and an annotated zone map, as well as updated references and native plant source listings.
