Manual of Woody Landscape Plants: Their Identification, Ornamental Characteristics, Culture, Propagation and Uses, Part 4
Each plant type (taxon) is discussed in a defined sequence and usually accompanied by a line drawing and identification characteristics related to leaf, bud, and stem. Certain plants are discussed under the heading RELATED SPECIES. This approach was taken to avoid repetition and at the same time allow for a significantly greater number of plant discussions. However, not all plants discussed under RELATED SPECIES are perfect taxonomic "fits."

As a horticulturist, this is my bible. The first place I go to find information about any woody landscape plant...which variety to use, exposure, culture, growth habit, size, possible diseases, etc. My treasured copy has been used for years and was signed by Michael Dirr after a hort lecture.
