Bring the landscape indoors!
Native plants are the natural centerpieces of the southeastern landscape. From the mountains of Southern Appalachia, into the Piedmont Plateau, and all the way down to the Atlantic and Gulf Coastal Plains, native plants provide an abundance of cut flowers, foliage, fruit, and berries that add regional character to any bouquet, vase, or wreath throughout the year. Inside are guides to the beautiful bounty of the region along with growth information, flower care, and how to forage and harvest responsibly, as well as tutorials that teach the expert and novice alike to arrange gorgeous floral designs by season.
