Impressive, lots of useful info not found in other books

I am very impressed with this unique book of over 900 shrubs that will add interest to any garden. The book starts with a glossary of botanical terms with b/w illustrations of the anatomy of leaves, flowers, fruits & conifers.Each shrub has botanical & common name, zone, native habitat, size, spread & shape as well as descriptions of leaves, flowers & fruit, plus soil & sunlight requirements, disease tolerance, transplanting & propagation advice.This is much more detailed than most reference books, giving information on winter appearance & landscaping value as well. There are 2-3 photos of each species including a full size view & leaf or flower close-ups.Appendices conveniently list shrubs by attributes including zone, light & soil requirements, & color of bloom. There is even information on sources for each species and gardens where each can be seen.Look for the companion book Plants That Merit Attention: Trees Vol. 1 which I also enjoyed.
