No reviews on the book at Amazon which sucks. I found one good review on the book, Pennystone Gardens. Get a load of the plant photographed when you read the review at that site. Anyway, I'm buying it since it's in their numero uno slot. These people have spot on taste in books. Most I have soooo... birds of a feather flock together and I'm buying it... when I remember. Besides which, I like to propagate for sport to see what I can kill each year. Propagation is an adventure. You can't live without trying your hand at seed. Anyone else use this book here?

Scratch what I just typed. One of us has read it and does highly recommend it, http://www.wildlifegardeners.org/for...s-cullina.html Read post 6, "If I was limited to one native plant book reference, this would be it." Buy the book!!!
