As the subtitle says, it seems to be a "definitive guide to the identification, cultivation, and uses of herbs." Note, there is an index of common names that you can use to look up by scientific name. Beautiful and informative like all other DK books I've seen.

The only bad thing besides the price is you need to know the scientific name or plant family.
The are a lot of pictures and describes different varieties - do's and don'ts' .
I would buy again [ have as gifts and one for 18 as a loaner ] .

Just bought this wonderful book along with two other AHS books, and between them and my Sunset, I have good information and pictures on most plants. Would highly recommend, even if you are not heavily into herbs as it has information on plants I would not have placed in that category.
