This book has beautiful color pictures of each plant and describes them by their common and botanical names. Gives planting times for North, Central and South Florida. Light and soil requirements and other important information. The only thing it very obviously leaves out is Salt Tolerance!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
