      A fully illustrated, practical guide for the millions of dry-climate professional and amateur gardeners who crave beautiful, low-maintenance gardens using native plants. The ultimate book for the southwest and southern California: both an innovative guide to design and a comprehensive resource to indigenous -color photographs. As tropical plants, plumerias (Plumeria spp.) tend to do well in warm weather conditions. Although they do not tolerate cold conditions well, heat and dryness generally aren't problematic for them.

      Deserts and steppes comprise the regions that are characterized by dry climates. These are arid and semiarid areas that have three main characteristics: very low precipitation, high evaporation rates that typically exceed precipitation and wide temperature swings both daily and seasonally. Plants for Dry Climates is the only book of its kind to cater to this thirsty audience, with information that comprises both good landscape design and essential cultural information for nearly plants/5(3).

      As the deadline approached for publication of the EBMUD plant book, Plants and Landscapes for Summer-Dry Climates, I found myself without an introductory chapter, nothing to set the tone or communicate to readers our intentions for the book. Consumed with a growing sense of panic, I headed off for the southern California desert, where I tend to go when I need to rest and recharge.
