Cultivate healthier soils and more resilient plants on your Idaho property by using plants native to the Intermountain West in your landscape design. This extensive bulletin, with astute insights from Extension experts and an Idaho master gardener, will help you to choose the most suitable trees, shrubs, vines, perennials, and grasses for high-desert, high-elevation mountain, and northern Idaho mountain/valley locations. An updated list of regional native plant nurseries and seed sources provides further contacts and options that will also help you to successfully design a native landscape.

Authors: Stephen Love, Kathy Noble, Jo Ann Robbins, Bob Wilson, and Tony McCammon
