This is an excellent, large book, containing over 8 000 plants, and 4 250 beautiful colour photographs.
It's designed specifically for Canadian gardeners but would be of interest to all.

Chapter titles include:

Plant Names and Origins
Creating a Garden
Plant Selector
The Plant Catalogue [over 400 pages, listing Trees, Shrubs, Roses, Climbers, Perennials, Annuals & Biennials, Rock Plants, Bulbs, Water Plants, Cacti and other Succulents]
The Plant Dictionary [another 330 pages of text only, listing almost all the cultivars and varieties you could think of, including common names]

Each plant in the Plant Catalogue section has its own photograph, and the trees and shrubs have a thumbnail silhouette sketch, which is a useful and seldom-seen feature. This book is highly recommended!!
