There are excellent color photos of 1,100 plants, complete with the necessary details of history, characteristics, and cultivation. The Random House Book of Roses, 0-394-75867-6. The Random House Book of Shrubs, 0-679-72345-5. The book is what I expected it to be as Volume 2 (from a different seller ) arrived before Volume 1. The only thing I wasn't too happy about was that the cover was detached from the book itself.

Extremely thorough. Not for a neophyte as it does assume that you are generally knowledgable about horticulture. Only two trivial complaints. First and foremost, the plants are ordered by latin family names. This will cause some problems, but hey! It is time you learned the scientific names. Temp hardiness is given in centigrade, but a conversion is shown in the front.

Overall, a great asset and provides a lot of detail that you will not find elsewhere.

If you purchase one of the used volumes, you will get a great deal.

This, and all other Random House Books of this genre, are consumate reference books for the serious or semi-serious gardener. Photos show entire plant from root to bloom and give all information required for cultivation. Wonderful for determining what to order amidst far-blown catalogue jargon. A must if you on well on the path to becoming a serious gardener indoors or out. (We all do both, don't we?)

These are great books.

Random House's guide to Indoor and Greenhouse plants Vol. II (I have not yet read Vol. I) is the first popular exotic plant dictionary I have seen that can approach the quality and comprehensiveness of the much more expensive Exotica or Tropica by Graf. This book provides clear descriptions and very nice photos of a variety of exotic plants from around the globe. Unlike many indoor plant books, this does not limit itself to the plants typically found in an average garden center, but covers many collector plants. The book's coverage of South African, Australian, Asian and South American species is much more comprehensive than any I have seen in other popular plant dictionaries. Entries are limited to physical description of each species, habitat and growth data, and brief information on pot and greenhouse cultivation. There are no separate sections on cultivation in this volume. I have been waiting for a book like this for some time and highly recomend it to both ! ! casual home gardeners and to collectors.
