I borrowed this book but I'm after buying it soon. The pictures are well worth the price of the book and show the character of the plant well. You don't need to squint to see the pictures or the flowers on the trees & shrubs in the pictures. General review of the plants with perspective of a mild temperate climate (Zone 8/9). A must-have and I'll add it to "Trees and Shrubs for Foliage" that I already have.

This is part of a series of books that deals with trees and shrubs. This book describes those grown primarily for their flowers. Lots of excellent pictures but really just scratches the surface in regards to flowering woody plants. However, for the beginner gardener, it is overall a worthwhile book as the plants described are those that are fairly commonly available. It does offer hardiness zones and ultimate plant heights. I covers woody plants from cold area to the sub-tropics. I was rather surprised that the book also translates the latin names of the plant discribed.
