Richard L. Bitner: Conifers for gardens. An illustrated encyclopedia. 1370 species and cultivars. 1550 Photographs. Very fine copy. Conifers for Gardens is intended to take away the element of uncertainty when you’re choosing a plant that may alter your yard for years to come. Profusely illustrated with more than 1,500 crisp photographs and brimming with concise descriptions of both species and their numerous cultivars, this meticulously researched reference provides information — including size, appearance, hardiness, preferred growing conditions and susceptibility to pests and diseases — for almost every hardy conifer you’re likely to encounter in the trade, whether it’s a tried-and-true favorite or a connoisseur’s treasure. So if you’ve ever been torn between, say, ‘Golden Mop’, ‘Lemon Thread’, and ‘Sungold’ sawara-cypresses, relax — choosing and identifying conifers just got a whole lot easier.
