Baker Morrow, Best Plants for New Mexico Gardens and Landscapes

First published in 1995, this invaluable guide to the trees, shrubs, ground covers, and smaller plants that thrive in New Mexico's many life zones and growing areas is now available in a long-awaited new edition. Landscape architect Baker H. Morrow considers the significant factors that impact planting in New Mexico--including soil conditions, altitude, drought, urban expansion, climate change, and ultraviolet radiation--to provide the tools for successful gardens and landscapes in the state. Added photographs and sketches identify the forms and uses of plants, including many new species that have become widely available in the region since the 1990s. The latest recommendations for specific cities and towns include more photos for ease of reference, and botanical names have also been updated. With ingenuity and efficient water management, Morrow demonstrates how to create landscapes that provide shade, color, oxygen, soil protection, windscreening, and outdoor enjoyment.

Baker H. Morrow is the author or editor of many books, including the coedited Anasazi Architecture and American Design and Canyon Gardens: The Ancient Pueblo Landscapes of the American Southwest. A practicing landscape architect in Albuquerque for more than forty years, he is the founder and a professor of practice in the landscape architecture program at the School of Architecture and Planning at the University of New Mexico.
