Oklahoma contains ten distinct ecological regions and five planting zones, so it should come as no surprise that it is home to its own unique repertoire of native plants. In this long awaited Oklahoma-specific gardening book, Oklahoma landscape architects Connie Scothorn and Brian Patric offer a conversational look at how to choose, plant, and care for the native forbs and grasses that pollinators, such as bees, butterflies, and birds, so desperately need to thrive in the state. The book includes the latest planting zone map, a Q&A and glossary, common and scientific names, resources, and lots of color photography of the plants themselves.
