Medit-Plants - mediterranean climate gardening

If you love the plants that live in a Mediterranean climate (rosemary, lavendar, clematis, etc.) be sure to visit the website designed specifically for them by Sean A. O'Hara.

O'Hara says on the site, "The world's mediterranean climate regions are distinctly different from other, summer rainfall regions. Because they are desirable places to live, there continues to be a migration to mediterranean climate areas. This has lead to a number of inappropriate and unsustainable horticultural practices - transplanted from elsewhere. These pages are meant to help disseminate a clear understanding of this summer-dry climate and how gardens can be both successful and sustainable."
