A Practical Handbook Of Trees, Shrubs, Vines And Herbaceous Perennials | by John Kirkegaard



In the preparation of this volume, the purpose continually in the mind of the author has been to afford a simple and convenient reference book of the ornamental trees and plants hardy in this climate; simple, yet concise, a guide valuable not only to the amateur, but to the busy architect, gardener or plantsman as well. Its form has been suggested by the needs encountered during a long period of private and commercial association with plants, when the material here set forth would at times have been most useful.
