Synopses & Reviews
Two superb volumes sponsored by the Garden Club of America intended to encourage more adventurous selections of trees and shrubs for planting in gardens, parks, and other public places. The second volume presents more than 900 garden-worthy shrubs for every climate, pictured in both overall form and close-up detail.
This magnificent reference provides excellent descriptions and color photos of hundreds of unusual woody plants that are beautiful, pest- and disease-resistant and tolerant of a variety of environments, yet are not often found at garden centers. Each selection features at least one photograph, plus cultivation and landscape information and a list of gardens or parks in the United States and Europe where the plants can be seen.
