To botanists and serious gardeners throughout the world, L.H. Bailey's standard Manual of Cultivated Plants has been an indispensable and definitive horticultural classic since its original publication in 1923. This revised edition, greatly expanded and completely restudied to bring it up to date, provides fresh material and current nomenclature. Its purpose, like that of the original edition, is to provide a ready means for the identification of species of plants usually domestic in the continental United States and Canada. Diagnoses, with full keys, of the species grown for food, ornament, utility, and general interest, both in the open and under glass, compose the main body of the work. Fruit, grains, grasses, vegetables, greenhouse plants, ornamental shrubs and plants, and garden flowers are included. in addition there are explanations of more than 1000 botanical terms, a list of authorities responsible for the Latin binomials, a key to the 194 natural families contained in the book, and 195 meticulously rendered drawings showing plant structures in detail.
