Following Dirr’s Hardy Trees and Shrubs, this companion volume is a superlative photographic encyclopedia of trees, shrubs, and vines for “warm temperate” zones.
Dirr’s Trees and Shrubs for Warm Climates shows both the habit and details – flower, fruit, bark, autumn colour – of more than 400 species and describes hundreds more cultivars and varieties. Certain genera offer myriad hybrids and selections, and photographs of many of the best of these are included as well.
The book concludes with useful lists for selecting plants for a variety of conditions or for ornamental characteristics, such as flower colour and fragrance, fruit, and autumn colour.
