Nova Scotia has some of the most colourful and attractive shrubs found anywhere in North America. Fortunately, many of them can easily be transplanted or propagated for landscaping around our homes and in our gardens.
Native plants are perfectly adapted to our climate and soil conditions and are often far more suitable for growing than many of the costly introduced species.
The author’s detailed drawings, useful keys and descriptions provided throughout the book make it easy to identify more than 100 species of shrubs, small trees, and woody vines native to Nova Scotia. A glossary of applicable terms, an extensive reference list, and indexes of both common and scientific names are also provided.
