George Kish, a hydrologist in the Tampa, Fla., office of the U.S. Geological Survey, is coauthor of a newly revised edition of The Right Plants for Dry Places—Native Plant Landscaping in Central Florida. Originally published in 1997, the book was revised by George Kish and Dick Wunderlin, University of South Florida botany researcher. This revised and expanded second edition (2005) has more plant species and more photographs, as well as all the information needed to incorporate native species into your central Florida garden. It tells how to identify, where to use, and how to care for 46 native trees, shrubs, groundcovers, and vines. It also gives blooming and fruiting times, mature size, wildlife value, and ethnobotanical uses.
