The good ol' standby with color photographs accompanying each plant's entry. Entries are arranged alphabetically by name instead of being grouped by plant type, use, or sunlight requirements. Unfortunately, plants are listed by their scientific names, so us unscientific folk with bad memories for Latin names have to continually refer to the index.

Part III is the encyclopedia while Parts I & II are devoted to how to design a garden and basic gardening instruction.
