This Sunset Book is a second edition, indicating there is a known market for this specialty subject. Subject matter is not arranged in the typical encyclopedic format, which makes this book one for the homeowner/grower/gardener as opposed to the educator or gardener in the field who needs quick information or advice. Color drawings and photos enhance all cultivar entries. The usual cultural information is provided along with landscaping and design suggestions. The editors should consider including color photographs referring to each disease, insect and cultural problem discussed.
