This book suggests lovely alternatives to the typical plants that we see so often now in most Northwest gardens. The author suggests many lovely native varieties that will make your garden every bit (perhaps more so) as beautiful than the more common imported varieties. Many nurseries now carry a pretty good selection of native plants. Leave behind what I call highway plants (you know, the ones you see planted by exits) and discover the beauty of Northwest natives!
