" Growing Australian Native Plants is the book of gardeners who want the maximum decorative effect with the minimum of maintenance. Mr Rogers's solution is a very workable one. Many people already have native trees growing on their land, so with a little thought these can be incorporated into the overall plan by planting ground cover plants and shrubs. Those who do not have the existing trees the author suggests a tree for every situation." -- from the front fold over panel. Part of the Popular Australian Library series. Size: 4to 9¾" - 12" tall.
