A series of beautiful, concise guides for growing and propagating native North American plants.


William Cullina's fresh and informative take on identifying and caring for native plants comes full circle in Native Ferns, Moss, and Grass , the third book in a series (which also includes Wildflowers and Native Trees, Shrubs and Vines ) that combines encyclopedic information about North American species with practical instruction. Cullina notes that ferns, moss, and grasses are the green canvas for colorful blooms: they bring a level of refinement and sophistication that no flower can match, and no garden is complete without them. Native Ferns, Moss and Grasses offers a thorough discussion of plant hardiness, and for each species the natural range, type of soil, and habitat in which the plant thrives is indicated. The book concludes with complete information on where to buy featured plants and suggested species for various uses and spaces.
