The Watersmart Garden - 100 Great Plants for the Tropical Xeriscape Product Description:

Two of Hawaii’s foremost horticulturalists, Fred Rauch and Paul Weissich, have chosen 100 plants perfect for inclusion in Hawaii’s watersmart xeriscape gardens. These carefully chosen plants, all readily available and fairly simple to maintain, are described and illustrated in this guide to planting a water-saving garden for the tropical climate.

Xeriscape principles are carefully explained and made easy to incorporate in your garden. Plants are organized by size and by water usage, while thoughtful plant notes will guide the interested gardener in planning for everything from the beach garden to a lei maker’s paradise. The book is beautifully illustrated with photographs of each plant in situ and with flowers or foliage in close-up.
