"Dry summers? Wet winters? This is your must-have guide. Gardening in an area defined by arid summers and soggy winters can be challenging. But gardens can thrive in such conditions, and this definitive handbook shares the plants and practices that will help you succeed. Landscape architect Nora Harlow and award-winning photographer Saxon Holt explain how plants adapt to the climate and how topography and climate relate. A comprehensive plant directory provides details on each plant's needs, and stunning photography shows how smart design can help address seasonal issues. It's everything you need to create a flourishing summer-dry garden"--Page 4 of cover.
