From the international bestselling author of What Flower Is That? and What Tree Is That? comes the newly updated title What Shrub Is That? More than 1250 popular shrubs are described in detail, including their soil preference, growth habit, ultimate height and span, flowering time, flower and leaf shape and size and preferred aspect in the garden. Each species is illustrated with a colour photograph, and each significant variety is mentioned and described. Easy-to-follow symbols will help the reader choose the ideal plant for its perfect place within the garden.
A love of plants seems to run in the blood of author/photographer Stirling Macoboy. He was often called Bill after his grandfather, Will Stirling, an irrigation engineer who was also an enthusiastic amateur gardener. A great-great-grandfather of the same name migrated to Australia from Scotland in the 1840's as a professional nurseryman. Whether or not you believe that green thumbs can be inherited, Stirling Macoboy has become an international best-selling author of garden books.
