This book is a field guide that describes over 125 species of mostly native, mostly woody plants of the Texas Hill Country. The book includes a thoughtful introduction that discusses deer, cedar, water, oak wilt, and invasive species, which are timely issues of increasing importance for a growing number of Texas landowners. The plant descriptions contain information about the leaves, flowers, fruit, and bark of each plant and also give insights into the species’ range and habits. A color photograph accompanies each account. The book also includes a comprehensive plant chart with tips about color, scent, flowering period, height, site preference, and wildlife and livestock utilization. A recommended reading list, a resource guide, and a glossary round out this information-packed book.
