Re: Sandy soil

A wonderful book, if you can find it, is Xeriscape Plant Guide, compiled by Denver Water and American Water Works Association and illustrations by the Denver Botanic Garden School of Botanical Illustration. Published by Fulcrum Publishing of Golden, CO in 1996. For each plant featured there are color photos as well as the illustrations, and a write up that includes: landscape use, form, characteristics, culture, best features, suggested companion plants, disadvantages, cultivars, and other related species.

Any advice on how to tame this bit of prairie will help. We've lost a
lot of plants this past year. I'm from CA where everything grows well.
I'm not used to coddling plants and actually having to pray that they'll
grow. LOL!

God bless, Dakota
