"James Bartholomew's Yew and Non-Yew is the Official Preppy Handbook for the gardening set. (The title comes from the British terms 'U' and 'non-U,' used to define upper-class and non-upper-class behavior. Bartholomew calls the yew tree the ultimate 'U' plant.) Smart and funny, it's the ideal guide for anyone who has ever felt insecure about underplantings. The book covers everything from the top Yew roses ('Comte or Comtesse d'Anywhere and Souvenir d'Anything') to why Yew vegetable gardens contain no vegetables. The book is Anglo-centric, but then again, so are most garden snobs." House & Garden
