From the Back Cover

"A useful and novel reference. . .There is nothing else quite like it."--Harrison L. Flint, Professor of Landscape Horticulture, Purdue University. Which Schrubs grow best in indoor malls? Which Decidious Trees can tolerate the high heat and air pollution of a southwestern urban plaza? Which Evergreens thrive despite the roadway salt spray of a northern suburban winter? Mammoth in scope yet easy to use, this unique reference summarizes and categorizes key facts about the common and not-so-common woody plants available to Norther American Landscape designers. It classifies more than 3,600 native and exotic trees, shrubs, and vines by environmental suitability, aesthetic qualities, cultural requirements, and design uses. Through 10,500 photographs and a dazzling easy-search format--the print equivalent of an exceptionally well-designed CD-ROM--North American Plantfile will ensure that you select the right plants for every landscaping project, every time.
