Overview
This is a plant identification book, pure and simple. Special features include a convenient index of Latin and common names with links to the page, without the need to scroll through several pages to find the plant. Whether you’re selecting, installing or purchasing flowering Annuals, you’re often presented with row upon row of plants in the garden center. If you’re unfamiliar with the plants’ identifying characteristics, how do you know which to choose? It’s easy. Just follow the simple clues offered here. Designed to be used at home, on the job site, at the garden center or in the classroom, this easy-to-read guide provides pertinent information on nearly 70 of the most common flowering Annuals. Each page features one plant, beautifully illustrated with full-color photographs that highlight the plant’s foliage and shape as well as its flower. Also included are the plant’s Latin and common names, complete with a simple pronunciation guide, a brief description of the plant’s key identifying characteristics. Simple, consistent descriptions and limited use of botanical terminology allow for easy reading, providing a good introduction for those new to landscaping or gardening and those who are learning English as a second language. A handy glossary of common botanical terms—presented in both English and Spanish—is provided as well. Glossary definitions are offered in language that is consistent, simple and easy to understand. These features make Guide to Identifying Annuals ideal for home gardeners, professional landscapers and Spanish-speaking landscapers with limited English reading skills. The guide was originally developed for use in the author’s plant identification classes, which were especially designed to accommodate Spanish speakers in the landscape profession.
