Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Although not as comprehensive as The American Horticultural Society A-Z Encyclopedia of Garden Plants, this is still a fine guide to common and rare garden plants. The photos are particularly good, and the text includes concise, basic information on each plant. Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
Booknews
A superb encyclopedia covering garden plants from coniferous trees to epiphytic orchids, with attention paid both to species and selections, the unusual and the commonplace. Illustrated throughout with abundant, thoughtfully selected color photographs. The volume employs a hardiness zone system, adapted from the USDA system and extended to the rest of the world. North American readers may find discrepancies with the original USDA zone system. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
Botanica is a beautifully and profusely illustrated 1020-page compendium of more than ten thousand plants, with complete, "user friendly" instructions on how to cultivate them. Laid out alphabetically, this A to Z anthology is a virtual showcase of color photography and is a pure pleasure to simply browse through, in addition to being an indispensable planning guide (there is an exhaustive index) for the family gardener or commercial horticulturalist. In addition to being very highly recommended for individual and academic gardening reference collections, Botanica would also make an impressive Memorial Fund selection for community libraries.
