With Simple Descriptions and Color ImageseBook - 2014
This is a plant identification book, pure and simple. Weather you're installing Annuals or purchasing them for your own use, you're often presented with row upon row of plants in containers. If you're unfamiliar with the plants' other characteristics, how do you know which to choose? It's easy. Just follow the simple clues offered here. Designed to be used on the job site, at the garden center or as a reference for your home garden, this easy-to-read guide provides pertinent information on nearly 70 of the most common flowering Annuals. Each page features one plant, beautifully illustrated with full-color photographs that highlight the plant's foliage and shape as well as its flowers. Also included are the plant's Latin and common names, complete with a simple pronunciation guide and a brief description of the plant's key identifying characteristics and use. Simple, consistent descriptions and limited use of botanical terminology allow for easy reading, providing a good introduction for those new to landscaping or gardening, and those who are learning English as a second language. A handy glossary of common botanical terms - presented in both English and Spanish - is provided as well. Glossary definitions are offered in language that is consistent, simple and easy to understand. You'll also find an index of Latin and common names with links from the plant name to the page. These features make Guide to Identifying Annuals ideal for both home gardeners and Spanish-speaking landscapers. The guide was originally developed for use in the author's plant identification classes, which were especially designed to accommodate Spanish speakers in the landscape profession, in addition to native speakers of English.
