Im sure there are sites to be found, but I stick to my god (Michael Dirr) Guide to hardy trees and shrubs. Latin names, common names, flowering times of yr, height, width, etc. Cost is about $70 but well worth it. I also use this to show scape customers illustrations.

THAT IS CERTAINLY THE BOOK TO HAVE...HOWEVER IF YOU ARE LOOKING TO THE INTERNET...CHECK OUT THESE...SPRRY I HAVEN'T FIGURED OUT HOW TO MAKE A LINK YET,,,
1 GARDEN WEB.COM....SIMILAR FORUM SET-UP, THIS IS A LARGE SITE.
2 LANDSCAPE MARKETPLACE.COM....IS A SALES COMPANY SPECIALIZING IN SPECIMEN PLANTS..BUT THE PHOTOS ARE GOOD AND THEY DESCRIBE EVERYTHING THEY SHOW....BY THE WAY ON A SALES NOTE..THEY AREN'T EXACTLY CHEAP

Fireman,
I'll give you a trade. You stop shouting at us with the Caps Locked, and I'll tell you how to make a link ;)

To make a link, type the bracketed sections exactly as shown, except without the spaces between the brackets and the website address:

[ url ] http://www.landscapemarketplace.com [ /url ]
www.landscapemarketplace.com

OK its hard to explain here because even with the spaces I added to confuse the computer, the software makes the address a link. But the stuff I wrote in the brackets, exactly as written including the brackets, with the web address in between will create the link.

Try some of the major college/university sites. I know schools like Ohio State, Penn State, and Rutgers have some really good information. U will find stuff on all sorts of things.
