Lets see.

Residential Landscape Architecture by Norman K. Booth and James E. Hiss
Landscape Architecture by John Ormsbee Simonds
Architectural Graphics by Frank Ching
Manual of Woody Landscape Plants by Michael A. Dirr
Manual of Herbaceous Ornamental Plants by Steven M. Still
Flowering Shrubs and Small Trees by Isabel Zucker
The Natural Shade Garden by Ken Druse

The above titles should be a good place to start.

Do a member specific search for Dreamscapes. I belive his name is Kurt/Kirk. He seems very knowledgable and I think he answered this question sometime ago. Good Luck.
