Shrublands exist all around us, thriving in almost any environmental condition, from the desiccating sunshine of the endless sagebrush steppe to the deep, private shade of moist forests. These diverse and inspiring ecosystems serve as perfect models for our gardens. Beyond their inherent beauty, they provide nurturing habitats and demonstrate resilience in the face of a changing climate.

Shrouded In Light is an invitation to work, live and play with shrubs by celebrating the shrublands that fill our world. It profiles dozens of shrublands, shrub forms, and shrub community types that exist across a wide spectrum of habitats and growing conditions. It also delves deeply into the philosophies, aesthetics, and design strategies that gardening with these awesome creatures unveils.

Shrouded in Light champions inspiration over instruction, offering more than 250 captivating photographs and illustrations to create an immersive experience of shrublands. Fifteen of these photographs, including the beautiful cover image, are by ForestWatch's Director of Conservation and Research Bryant Baker.
