Alphabetically ordered, this text is an easy reference for over 1500 individual plants. Each entry, illustrated with a colour photograph, contains a full plant profile: flower and leaf descriptions; height and spread measurements; growing conditions; and usages. There is also an introduction on general planting principles, including advice on form, texture and colour in the garden.Essentially an abridged edition of British horticulturist Davis's encyclopedic Gardener's Essential Plant Guide (Thunder Bay, 1997), this work instead organizes plant descriptions categorically, with separate sections devoted to trees, shrubs, perennials, etc. The individual plant profiles, accompanied by color photographs, are generally accurate; North American hardiness information is also given.
