PlantFiles is getting a new look! Just in time for spring, we're rolling out a new look for the best online plants database. It will also work with your smart phones and mobile devices, so now you can take it with you on garden center visits or botanical garden tours. Questions or comments? Please post them here.
I received this as a gift a few years after it was released. It is a HUGE book, even for a "coffee table book" type book. A little hard to juggle on your lap, especially if you're simultaneously looking up information online (like I usually am.)
Once you get used to the layout - all roses except the miniatures are alphabetized by name (not organized by class), and every so often there's an insert with information about a specific class of roses - it's a decent reference book, if bulky. For reference and comparative purposes, it would be better if the roses were categorized by class, then alphabetized. It's a fun book to curl up with just for daydreaming!
