This magnificent reference provides excellent descriptions and color photos of hundreds of unusual woody plants that are beautiful, pest- and disease-resistant and tolerant of a variety of environments, yet are not often found at garden centers. Each selection features at least one photograph, plus cultivation and landscape information and a list of gardens or parks in the United States and Europe where the plants can be seen.

Review:

[With "Plants That Merit Attention Vol II, ] It is easy to say these books set the current standard for excellence in horticultural reference books. The crystal clear photographs and clean, uncluttered layout make these not only a joy to use, but also very valuable for showing to clients.... It's a real pleasure working with books that I can recommend so whole heartedly. 'Must haves' for any serious reference shelf. The project promises to be a far-reaching resource for gardeners. This book is destined to become a standard for all landscape specialists. The book merits space on the bookshelf of any serious gardener as a reference. This is a first-rate effort...to encourage the planting of some marvelous trees that are too often overlooked. This book is the first step in an ambitious project that seeks to make both professionals and home gardeners aware of different plants that can be grown in their locale. Good color illustrations appear directly across from the text increasing the book's usefulness. . . . I sincerely hope this project can continue. The next volume is supposed to deal with herbaceous material. I can hardly wait. [With "Plants That Merit Attention Vol II, "] It is easy to say these books set the current standard for excellence in horticultural reference books. The crystal clear photographs and clean, uncluttered layout make these not only a joy to use, but also very valuable for showing to clients.... It's a real pleasure working with books that I can recommend so whole heartedly. 'Must haves' for any serious reference shelf. -- Evelyn Wolf "Ontario Arborist" (02/01/2000)
