Hortica: color cyclopedia of garden flora in all climates--worldwide--and exotic plants indoors

User Review  - Not Available - Book Verdict

With their immense number of high-quality color photographs (Hortica has 8100; Tropica, 7000), these are the best sources for identifying and choosing tropical and indoor (Tropica) as well as garden plants (Hortica). Plant descriptions are very limited, but that's not the focus. Read full review
