A rare treasure: the original 1995 British edition of the most comprehensive guide to trees and shrubs available, covering more than 4000 plants — from Abelia to Zenobia. Authoritative and meticulously researched, each entry gives full plant descriptions. Book also includes basic botany, planting and care, and charts comparing plant features. Compiled by John Kelly, a respected gardening authority, in cooperation with the Hillier Nurseries, a world-famous center for more than 40,000 trees and shrubs that has won countless awards. The book won the prestigious Garden Writers Guild Publisher’s Award in 1995. A must-have directory for serious gardeners.
