    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.
