Key to Common Woody Landscape Plants in the Midwest

Benton Stidd and Robert Henry

This unique book allows the student to identify unknown woody plants when encountered in the landscape. Vegetative characteristics of plants in full foliage are used as the primary diagnostic basis for identification. Flower and fruit characteristics are included to help confirm the identification.

The inclusion of both a common name index and a scientific name index further assists the diagnostic process. This book is a useful supplement for reference manuals and its small size and spiral binding make it ideal for active field use.
