Many of the semi-arid NorthwestÃ¢ÂÂs beautiful, diverse native plants are lovely additions to gardens, but are not widely grown. Cultivating the Wild aims to change this situation. This is the first comprehensive guide to gardening with native plants of the semi-arid Northwest, with speciesÃ¢ÂÂ descriptions, where to purchase them, how to grow them alone or with non-native plants, and some basic design ideas. Gardeners will find plenty of information and new challenges while other readers will be attracted by the wealth of information about the plants that shape our Interior ecosystems.
