Two of Hawai‘i’s foremost horticulturalists, Fred D. Rauch and Paul R. Weissich, have chosen 100 plants perfect for inclusion in Hawai‘i’s watersmart xeriscape gardens. These carefully chosen plants, all readily available and fairly simple to maintain, are described and illustrated in this guide to planning a water-saving garden for the tropical climate.

The Watersmart Garden will help you to select and group plants to create a beautiful garden while saving our most precious resource water. Xeriscape principles are carefully explained and made easy to incorporate in your garden. Plants are organized by size and by water usage, while thoughtful plant notes will guide the interested gardener in planning for everything from the beach garden to a lei maker’s paradise. The book is beautifully illustrated with photographs of each plant in situ and with flowers or foliage in close-up.

Fred D. Rauch is emeritus professor of horticulture at the University of Hawai‘i at M?noa.Paul R. Weissich is a licensed landscape architect and author whose familiarity with tropical landscape species has resulted in numerous consultant assignments.
