The third book in Dr Alfred Byrd Graf's series of pictorial encyclopaedias on ornamental plants in horticulture, "Hortica" presents, in a kaleidoscope of 8000 colour photographs, more than 10,000 ornamental and fruited plants and trees including herbaceous perennials and annuals, cacti and other succulents, flowering shrubs and trees, water plants, climbers and creepers, bamboos and grasses, fruits and berries, and exotic plants for indoors, for climates worldwide. Each entry includes a description of the plant's native habitat and its climatic preferences, including its USDA zone.

With their immense number of high-quality color photographs (Hortica has 8100; Tropica, 7000), these are the best sources for identifying and choosing tropical and indoor (Tropica) as well as garden plants (Hortica). Plant descriptions are very limited, but that's not the focus.
