"Author Rickard, a botanical guide for Botanical World Discoveries, has appeared in television and radio. In this color photo illustrated guide, he recommends drought-tolerant native and non-native garden plants to transform a heat-stunned Australian yard into a haven of beauty and abundance. The book goes into detail about factors that affect Australia's climate and growing season, describing how plants adapt to the continent's different climate environments. There is also an overview of the microclimates of the garden itself, from sun to shade, moist to dry. A directory of plants offers entries with information on growing season, garden uses, cultivation, varieties, and drought tolerance. Each entry is illustrated with a color photo."--Book News Inc.
