Pleased  Aug 21, 2006
Good all around book, gives a little info on most plants/trees. Fast delivery and Great price.
I can't make a move in my yard without this book!  Jul 12, 2005
Ok! I've been in Florida since I was 4 years old... 34 years. My Mom started me loving plants & gardening. I have never read a book on Florida gardening like this book & I've been around a lot of plant books. Everything wonderful that I want to grow in Florida is featured in this book & the pictures are the best. Each plant is featured on its own page & at the bottom of the page the author gives his opinion on his personal favorite selection. I can't believe how many new plants I have been turned on to by reading this book, like the Kaffir Lily (Clivia), which I now own 3! Absolutely beautiful plant! The book also has several references to Florida native plants & plants that are in keeping with a the old Florida look, which I'm especially fond of. Not every book on Florida plants is going to have every little thing, but if you're looking for the best of everything, an interesting yet easy read, stop right here... You just found it!
I am a new homeowner, and I have bought several books on the ins and outs of gardening. This book is the best. If offers simple to read pages on different types of plants to be used in Florida. I consider this my "garden bible." I realize that it is not in-depth, but it certainly highlights the basic information on what type of plant, where to plant, and what to feed it. I have purchased most of my plants for my landscape based on recommendations from this book. I have been more than pleased with the results.

If there is a book you need to help you design your home landscape, this is definately the place to start!

I wish there were more  Mar 17, 2003
The first thing I have to say about this book is that I wish it were more comprehensive. I moved to Florida from the north, and find the book an excellent reference. The pictures are wonderful, and only a few plants do not have them. I especially find the sections on "companion planting and design" and "regional advice and care" helpful. The book is well-organized into sections on trees, perennials, tropical plants, vines, etc. The drawback is that the book refers to plants that are not included, which leaves me searching for another reference to find out the appearance and habitat of that plant. Overall, an excellent place to start. Sam's Club has it at a great price.
Best Book ever....  Dec 28, 2001
This is absolutely the best book ever for getting plant identifications. If you garden in Florida, this is a 'must have' book for reference.
