Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Edited by Brickell (chair, International Commission for the Nomenclature of Cultivated Plants) and Cathey (president emeritus, American Horticultural Society), this lavishly illustrated revision of the 1997 authoritative edition covers over 2000 genera with more than 15,000 individual entries of annuals, perennials, trees, shrubs, climbers, rock plants, biennials, bulbs, orchids, and much more. The volume's heart is an extensive encyclopedia of garden plants, which is preceded by the introductory section on plant morphology, general culture, and plant types. Arranged by genus, each entry includes family name, a description of the genus, native habitat, garden uses, cultivation, propagation, and pests and diseases. The entries contain a description, height, width, USDA hardiness zones, heat zones, and cultivars. While some new cultivars and species descriptions are included, the introductory material is the same as in the previous edition. In fact, apart from the addition of heat zones to entries, much of the volume is virtually identical to the first edition. Bottom Line Libraries outside of tropical and subtropical regions that have a limited budget should consider Taylor's Encyclopedia of Garden Plants as a cheaper, if less comprehensive, alternative. Libraries owning the 1997 edition need to decide whether the addition of heat zones and the limited changes justify the $80 expenditure.-Sue O'Brien, Downers Grove P.L., IL Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

    If you are going to have only one reference book of plant material, this is probably the one you want.

    Great comprehensive book, with excellent pictures. Although listings are naturally by botanical name, index contains common names to make reference easy. More user friendly than Hortus. Good in combination with Dirr's Manual of Woody Landscape Plants and possibly Armitage's Herbaceous Perennial Plants, but for the average indiviual, this is a great one stop reference.

    This book is very informative to gardeners or people who want to start gardening.

    This book is a good research book as well as entertaining as one reviews each page. This book would make an excellent book for gardeners or someone who has an interest in plants. I wouldn't recommend this book if one does not have an interest in gardening or learning about plants.
