    What book do you recomend for a complete compendium of shrub/tree I.D w/pictures? And where to get it? I'd also like one on Flowers. They must have Good color pictures.

    Thank you

    I have the set of cd-roms from Horticopia. Has basically every tree and shrub on the market along with all annuals and perennials.

    For a reasonable price, I like TREES OF NORTH AMERICA.

    It covers about 500 trees.

    There are pages with photos of about 15 twig samples together for comparison, and other pages with ID info and silouette.

    Used, its about $15.
