Using their years of experience in designing landscapes using native plants, CLS & Associates wrote a book that highlights the benefits of using native plants in Oklahoma's weather extremes. According to Scothorn, native plants not only offer year-round interest and beautiful flower colors but also support pollinators such as birds, bees, and butterflies. In addition, they require less maintenance than alien plants, making them a practical choice for landscape designers and gardeners.
Prior to this publication, there was no good resource for information on Oklahoma native plants that could be referenced by landscape designers or gardeners. "We hope this book will make it easier for people to use native plants in the landscape by consolidating information into one easy-to-use reference", says Patric.
The book profiles over 60 native forbs and grasses with stunning color images, detailed descriptions, and growth information, along with information on which pollinators benefit. Moreover, it provides insights into planting and locations where native plants can be viewed, making it a must-have guide for anyone interested in using native plants in the landscape.
