Description
This is a plant identification book, pure and simple. Whether you’re selecting, installing or purchasing trees and shrubs, you’re often presented with row upon row of plants in the nursery. 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 on the job site, at the garden center or in the classroom, this easy-to-read guide provides pertinent information on nearly 340 of the most common trees, shrubs, conifers, vines and groundcovers. 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, and space for the reader’s own notes. You’ll also find 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. 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. An easy-to-understand guide to botanical nomenclature gives the reader a quick lesson in plant names, and 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 Trees and Shrubs ideal for Spanish-speaking landscapers and gardeners 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. Due to the large number of pictures, the book is divided into 2 volumes. Volume 1 covers plants A-L and Volume 2 covers Plants M-Z sorted by Latin name.
