Carol Bornstein is a horticulturist, instructor, and garden designer. For more than 30 years, she has been an advocate for sustainable, regionally appropriate landscaping. While Director of Horticulture at the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden, she managed the living collections, retail nursery, and plant introduction program and selected several new cultivars. She continues to seek out exceptional plants for California gardens and to share her knowledge of plants native to California and other mediterranean regions through her writing, teaching, and design work. David Fross is the founder and president of Native Sons Wholesale Nursery, a grower specializing in plants from mediterranean-climate regions of the world. He teaches horticulture at California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo and is the co-author of "Ceanothus." Bart O'Brien is the Director of Special Projects at Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden in Claremont, an educational institution dedicated to research, conservation, and horticulture of California native plants. A fifth-generation Californian, he is an authority on the native flora of the state and of northern Baja California and is an accomplished collector, grower, lecturer, and author. He was named the Horticulturist of the Year in 2005 by the Southern California Horticultural Society and was listed as one of the 100 most influential people in Southern California by the Los Angeles Times in 2006.

  • Great Resource

    Living in California with it's Mediterranean climate, it would be wonderful if we could plant gardens that respected the climate we are in. Using clean, potable water to maintain an endless sea of grass seems as practical as making golf courses in Arizona. It simply is not the right ecological thing to do if we are conscious about how we use our natural resources. This book gives wonderful alternatives to the dreamy green lush lawns that we imagine in our minds. I will most definitely use the recommended plants as an effort to make my lawn as adapted to the climate as possible. I'd prefer to work with mother nature rather than try to overcome her will. I think the book goes a long way to help Californians understand what is possible with our lawns while being mindful of the water we use.
