Product Details


“Compact and easy-to-read, with practical tips for “going dry,” a.k.a. transitioning to a drought-resistant yard, along with loads of color photos of flowering shrubs, perennials, ground covers, succulents and grasses.”
—The Los Angeles Times

“[This book] couldn’t come at a better time. As we adjust to using less water in every part of our lives, Gilmer’s book provides practical guidance to gardeners who want vibrant landscapes in the future while using less of our precious resource, water.”
—The Oregonian

“This book features beautifully illustrated profiles of drought-tolerant plants”
Texas Gardener

“Includes guidelines for transitioning yards to an “arid palette,” as well as hundreds of photos and detailed descriptions of flowering plants and trees that provide the punches of color she and other floral fans crave.”
Las Vegas Review-Journal 

“Maureen Gilmer consolidates everything you need to know to get started [in water-wise gardening] based on her 30 years of experience in the field…. The perfect resource for folks who may not be hard-core gardeners but want a beautiful yet unthirsty garden all the same.”
