The Taylor's Guides are excellent references to plants for particular uses or categories of plants. They are references, not really books to read. Lots of pictures, lots of plant listings, and some advice on how to grow plants in shade.
Review: Taylor's Guide to Shade Gardening: More Than 350 Trees, Shrubs, and Flowers That Thrive Under Difficult Conditions, Illustrated with Color Photographs and Detailed DrawingsUser Review - Goodreads
Good basic guide but the photos I find a bit misleading - a lot of giant specimens on their lonesome from a distance, which doesn't really give you a clue what they'll look like in a garden.
