Abstract:

"With an unprecedented depth of photographic detail, Antoine le Hardy de Beaulieu has compiled the definitive guide to the beauty of maples. A landscape designer and nurseryman, he has sought to emphasize hardy plants and their features that deserve more notice in our gardens. Many of the 250 maples he illustrates are still found mainly in arboreta and public gardens and are neglected by designers and home gardeners. His hope is that this book will create a new demand for these exceptional plants."

"Supplementing the concise and practical descriptions are 1200 gorgeous photos showing different aspects of each plant. Landscape architects, garden designers, plant enthusiast, and home gardeners will find this photobook a delightful and invaluable tool for making informed decisions about choosing the right tree or shrub. No other reference offers more photos on this beloved and versatile group."--Jacket.
