I live in El Paso, Texas, and want to know more about flowers and other native plants and landscaping in this specific geographical area. I would like information on particular plants that are suitable to El Paso as well as sources of information in order to learn more on the subject in our area....literature, organization, individuals.
The Native Plant Society in your area is a very good resource. The chapter nearest to you for the Native Plant Society of Texas is the Big Bend Chapter. However, the Native Plant Society of New Mexico has an El Paso Chapter. Their Bookstore has a wide selection of books dealing with identification of and landscaping with native plants. I've provided a link to Amazon.com for some suggested titles so that you can get a little more information about them. For some of them, you will be able to see a portion of the contents of the book on Amazon.
You can find names and contact information for nurseries and seed companies in your area that specialize in native plants by visiting National Suppliers Directory and searching by state or region.
