The Year in Trees by J.C. Raulston and Kim Tripp

As Heard on The Daily Gardener Podcast:

Copy of Grow That #Garden Library (3)

Today's book recommendation: A Year in Trees by J. C. Raulston and Kim Tripp

Raulston and Tripp point out that  just,

"40 species of shrubs and trees make up 90 percent of the landscape plantings in the U.S."

The book is divided into four parts corresponding to the seasons.

Tripp honed her craft at Harvard's Arnold Arboretum and she wrote weekly articles for the North Carolina State University Arboretum in Raleigh. Those articles became the backbone for 150 profiles of trees, shrubs, and vines. Tripp featured plants are pretty low maintenance and reliable.

This is a terrific resource featuring some under-used, but amazing, trees.
