Product Details


“Weeds in the Urban Landscape not only serves its purpose in helping avid gardeners and horticulturalists identify weeds in their gardens, fields, and landscapes, it also blends plant identification with fascinating ethnobotany of numerous species, covering interesting facts about their uses, properties, and history. For those interested in learning the identity of weeds and more, this will be one of their go-to resources.”
 —Joe DiTomaso, noncrop weed specialist, University of California, Davis
Weeds in the Urban Landscape is an enthusiastic, informed, and respectful look at the wild, tenacious plants we gardeners love to hate; a call to accept, and even appreciate, their essential role in a resilient, healthy environment.”
—Lorene Edwards Forkner, editor, Pacific Horticulture
“Richard Orlando combines his obvious knowledge of plants, an expansive view of botanical history, and just the right amount of humor to create this eminently readable treatise on urban weeds. The book should be on the shelf of any aspiring landscaper, gardener, or defender of ecosystems.”
—Chris Geiger, San Francisco Department of the Environment
