This is the latest edition of an acknowledged garden classic. Trees and Shrubs for Temperate Climates is organized by plant type-low-growing, medium-growing, and tall-growing shrubs; trees, vines, and conifers – with description, including growth habit and height, hardiness rating, and sun and soil requirements. Each plant is illustrated with a color photograph showing garden usage. This new edition includes new photographs of many species and cultivars better demonstrate the plants' salient characteristics. Gardeners everywhere in Zones 6-10 – including parts of Australia and New Zealand-have long relied on Courtright's encyclopedia as the handiest source of information on and inspiration for plants for specific landscape uses. They will continue to be well served by this third revised edition.
