Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Review:

"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)

Review:

"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

Review:

"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

Synopsis:

This is the latest edition of an acknowledged garden classic. The book is organized by plant type-low-growing, medium-growing, and tall-growing shrubs; trees, vines, and conifers --- with description, including growth habit and height, hardiness rating, and sun and soil requirements. Each plant is illustrated with a color photograph showing garden usage. This new edition includes new photographs of many species and cultivars better demonstrate the plants' salient characteristics. Gardeners everywhere in Zones 6-10 --- including parts of Australia and New Zealand-have long relied on Courtright's encyclopedia as the handiest source of information on and inspiration for plants for specific landscape uses. They will continue to be well served by this third revised edition.Published at $29.95 Our last copies available at $14.98
