This long-awaited collaboration introduces the native plant gardener to the wonderful possibilities included in the monocots - lilies, irises, grasses, orchids, agaves, and palms. Some of the most beautiful flowering plants in the world are in this group, from our beloved mariposa tulips to the gorgeous native irises and handsome grasses from all over California. Kristin Jakob's award-winning line-drawings are a delight, and it is lavishly illustrated with color photos as well. A real treasure.
