Agaves Yuccas and Related Plants: A Gardener's Guide
Author(s): Irish, M & G. Irish
Publisher: Portland, Or. : Timber Press
Subject: Gardening, Plant Identification
Comments: This book fills a real gap in information for gardeners interested in agaves, yuccas, and similar plants, such as hesperaloes. I haven't found any other book that lists so many species of these plants AND has photographs of each. The text has extensive information for both identifying and growing these plants, whereas many books on plants will emphasize one aspect or the other. In other words, this book would be useful for botanists as well as gardeners and horticulturalists (Amazon.com review).
