Paul E. Hosier will be reading and discussing his guide to native coastal zone Carolina plants, with a special emphasis on the benefits of conserving and landscaping with native plants.

This accessibly written and authoritative guide updates the beloved and much-used 1970s classic Seacoast Plants of the Carolinas. In this completely reimagined book, Paul E. Hosier provides a rich, new reference guide to plant life in the coastal zone of the Carolinas for nature lovers, gardeners, landscapers, students, and community leaders.

Paul E. Hosier is professor emeritus of botany at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington.
