  Garden Bookworm editor's notes:  
The ultimate guide to trees and shrubs. This comprehensive A-Z listing identifies over 2,000 plants, and includes a wealth of information on cultivation in all climate and soil conditions. Also includes a handy reference table and an index of common names and synonyms, which makes for easy use. Truly an exceptional value with over 1,000 pages and over 2,500 beautiful, full-color images. Makes an impressive botanical library with its companion volume, Botanica's Annuals & Perennials.

This book is really world wide in scope, but Zones are listed for the USA. As anyone knows one persons' perennial is anothers' annual. Photos are of good quality and plant descriptions are accurate. I like the compact paperback form the book is bound in (makes it really easy to take to a nursery or botanical garden). With a 1000 pages of info, most of the best cultivars are listed though many of the newest ones are not. Oh well, can't have it all! I find it much better than the Taylors Guides.

This update applies to the Bontanica\'s Pocket Annuals and Perennials paperback as well. Both books make a great pair for your book self.
