'...The first comprehensive and authoritative reference book on shrubs and trees to be published in Australia. This fourth edition has been almost completely re-written, and there are now over 3,500 different shrubs and trees from this country, New Zealand and overseas, described in detail and classified for growing under every possible condition.
Precise details for recognition, added advice on cultural requirements and name revisions are also included, making this volume the most up to date reference work of its kind. Most of the shrubs and trees referred to may be known by a standardized common name, and every name, common or botanical, has its place in the comprehensive index system of over 6,650 names.'
