Mellichamp Authors 'Native Plants of the Southeast'
Larry Mellichamp, director of the UNC Charlotte Botanical Gardens, has written Native Plants of the Southeast, which was published by Timber Press.
Billed as a comprehensive guide to the best 460 species for the garden, Native Plants of the Southeast features the most beautiful native plants that adapt well to garden cultivation, have multi-season appeal and attract native butterflies, birds and other beneficial wildlife, according to the publisher. The work includes profiles on hundreds of trees, shrubs, vines, wildflowers, grasses, aquatics and ferns, and it covers the entire southeast region of the United States.
