2010, 928 pages. This is the only reference available in English with the current names of thousands of plants found in gardens and the wild. Valuable to botanists, horticulturists, agronomists, and foresters who must work with plants on a daily basis, it is also useful for advanced gardeners who seek accurate and precise information on the plants they grow. It includes the English, French, and German common names for most of the 20,000 plants described. More than 10,000 synonyms are also included.

The level of detail in each entry is without parallel: type of plant, life cycle, geographic distribution, growing habit, foliage type, cold-hardiness (using USDA hardiness zones), flowering time, garden habitat, botanical author, medicinal or toxic properties, cut flower use or decorative fruits, fragrance value, endangered protection status, and vernacular name in up to three languages, with cross-references to Latin names.  Hardcover; 6 x 8-1/2".
