Abstract:

Subtitle: A discussion, for the amateur, and the professional and commercial grower, of the kinds, characteristics, and methods of cultivation of the species of plants grown in the regions of the United States and Canada for ornament, for fancy, for fruit and for vegetables; with keys to the natural families and genera, descriptions of the horticultural capabilities of the states and provinces and dependent islands, and sketches of eminent horticulturists.

Aims to cover completely the horicultural flora of the continental United States and Canada and to include the moreoutstanding species grown in a horticultural way in Puerto Rico, Hawaii, and the other islands. The last volume includes supplementary articles, a finding list of binomials, and a general index.

Special features to be noted are: (1) the very comprehensive inclusion of American native plants, trees, and shrubs, which makes the work useful for questions in botany; (2) the full indexing of illustrations, both black-and-white and colored, included in many other works (e.g., in periodicals and collections).
