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 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.
