Ground covers for rough sites is a brief fact sheet with recommendations for tough ground covers appropriate for northern climates (zones 3 and 4). The fact sheet starts with grasses for sunny and shady sites. Native grasses are discussed. A table of herbaceous ground covers for low maintenance sites and a table or woody plants for low maintenance sites are included. The table include common name, scientific name, height, tolerances of shade and drought, site preferences and outstanding features or comments. Reviewers feel the usefulness of this publication is limited to northern audiences. There are no graphics or photographs to illustrate the recommended plants, which limits usefulness to those already familiar with the plant or those willing to look the recommended plants up in another reference. There are no references listed.
