Excellent two volumed encyclopidia (V1 A-j, V2 K-Z).

Sections on how to use the book, botany for the gardener, cultivation and ornamental plant groups.

main bulk of both volumes in an A-Z which gives brief description, into on hardiness, cultivation, propagation and pests & diseases. Also info on cultivars and variants. Some small thumbnail photos and line drawings for illustration.

If it grows you will find it in this book. Regarded world wide as the plant bible

The only annoying thing about this incredible book is you have to know the Latin name for a plant in order to look it up. Otherwise, it's as comprehensive as anyone could wish, and also "correct" (for instance, it lists pelargoniums under pelargoniums, not geraniums, one of my pet peeves).
Great resource. I've never failed to find what I'm looking for here.
