Sutton is your expert guide. -- Sharon Wootton "Everett Herald" (04/26/2001) It is enthusiastically recommended for anyone interested in raising a flower garden with daisies. A remarkably diverse group is fully and handsomely treated in "The Plantfinder's Guide to Daisies." A very pleasant useful book for anyone with a garden of flowers. -- Judy Glattstein "Home Monthly" (06/16/2001) Another in an excellent series of in-depth plant profiles from Timber Press. -- Carol Haggas "Booklist" (05/18/2001) This book will have me rethinking my plant palette for years to come. -- Linda Beutler "Garden Showcase" (10/01/2001) A fun and informative treatment of the diverse Aster family, encompassing a vast array of diverse plants . . . Excellent color photographs. The book is well illustrated, and includes some excellent composite plates (no pun intended!) -- Simon Thornton-Wood "Garden (Peterborough)" (08/04/2001) Here is everything you may have wanted to know about the daisy (Asteraceae, or alternatively Compositae) family. -- Helen Chesnut "Victoria Times Colonist" (07/07/2001) It is often easy to identify a flower to the Asteraceae, but much more difficult to identify the species. Certainly this book will be a great help to those who try. -- R. Cox "California Garden" (07/10/2001) For the gardener looking for a general reference book on the daisy family, this book presents an excellent overview of one of the most popular and extensively planted of all the plant groups. -- Jim Kemper "Chicago Botanic Garden" (01/10/2002) But it is the excellent plant directory where most gardeners will want to spend time. Here Sutton has done a superb job of sorting through this huge plant family and focusing on its most garden-worthy members. -- Ethel Fried "Manchester (CT) Journal Inquirer" (04/28/2001) I love that an entire book has been devoted to these common favorites. . . . A readable and inclusive approach provides a fresh look at the virtues and possibilities of plants so long familiar and perhaps needlessly overlooked. -- Valerie Easton "Horticulture" (09/18/2003) The careful arrangement of data on the most popular of bedding flowers is both delightful and informative. . . . Throughout Sutton's tutorial of daisy history, botany, and propogation, he showers his pages with beauty. -- Mary Ellen Snodgrass "American Reference Books Annual" (04/23/2001) Scintillating photographs, both in the garden and in close-up shots that show individual characteristics clearly, help readers focus on the attractions of each species. Everything is well-labelled, and you'll pick up knowledge just by browsing this extensive but digestible volume. -- Lillie Dorchak "Hunterdon County Democrat" (11/01/2001)
