Im looking for any suggestions on good books about landscape plants. Im familiar with the basics, but want to educate my self further. Any recommendations? Thanks.

Personally, i'm would look more for articles, rather than books... Internet is good for that... Books are too general and cover only the author's opinion and experience.
Horticulture is science, landscape is aesthetics...

This site has some good books - http://www.amerinursery.com/shop.php?c=c4&x=Landscaping

This book has been excellent for plant i.d. - http://www.amazon.com/Newcombs-Wildflower-Guide-Lawrence-Newcomb/dp/0316604429

This is the most comprehensive site that i have found for plant books - http://www.timberpress.com/

There are a lot of good books to be had at various university book stores.
