Synopses & Reviews
Selected as one of the best gardening books of the last 75 years, this classic collection of 800 color photographs shows what mature plants look like in typical landscape settings.
"What?s different about this book that sets it apart from others is how the book is organized by plant type low-growing, medium-growing, and tall-growing trees, shrubs, vines, and conifers so most of your homework is already done for you." Pernell Gerver, Sunday Republican, April 26, 1998
"It must be one of the most extensive collections of coloured photographs and descriptions of landscape plants ever published, and it can [be] useful for botanist and in university education as well." R. Goldman, Acta Botanica Hungarica, 38 (1-4)
"This edition is simply marvelous! Timber Press as always did a beautiful job. The book is a must for anyone in the nursery industry...a very valuable book, and I am going to cut this short and go order mine right now!" Harry Tolen, California Garden
