British plantsman Lancaster presents his 100 favorite plants including trees, shrubs, climbers, conifers, and perennials, and ranging from rare Asian specimens to common North American sassafras. These plants stand out because of unique shape, leaves, bark, flower, or fruit. Some are vigorous while others require careful tending. Lancaster describes growth habits, origins, and his experiences with each plant depicted in beautiful photographs. Oriented toward British readers, the book still has enough information on suitability for American gardens to warrant its purchase by libraries serving advanced gardeners. Peter C. Leonard, Carnegie Lib. of Pittsburgh
