While architects may need pictures, this guide is produced as a serious reference work for the horticulture/design profesional.
invaluable.

As an Architect, I found this reference book to be of very limited value. It has no photographs or sketches other than the one on the jacket, nor does it give useful details about the plants, such as mature height, width of crown, radius of root spread, demand of water, preferred type of soil, etc.
This book is a disappointment.

Not for the weekend gardener 22 May 2000
By amazona - Published on Amazon.com

I believe this book would only be of interest to selected people. Those would be people who want to know that, for example "pumila L. A small to large shrub of upright habit with downy youg shoots and point, coarsely toothed leaves. E North America. I 1762." To be fair, there are probably botantist and perhaps nusary people who would recognise the value in this type of manual. My point is that to the layman this is of limited value. The one thing I did learn is to never buy a book with out at least seeing a table of contents. The main contents of this manual are the short descriptions, of which I provided an example.
