This beautifully illustrated book provides a full treatment of conifers. There are sections on their use in gardens and landscapes; techniques for taking advantage of their varied form and color; full description of how to plant, propagate, and prune; and a complete taxonomy of conifer varieties, each with a paragraph of description.
