Reference Book

 To help identification and solve cultural problems, I turn to reference books.
I have a well-stocked reference library that covers every plant genus I can grow and then some.
New additions are made yearly and still the wish list keeps getting longer.

One of my best finds of the year is Irises: A Gardener's Encyclopedia by Claire Austin .
The book covers a lot of ground and even includes photos of roots of different types of irises.
There is also a section on hybridizing and growing irises from seed.
The information and photos in this book make it invaluable for all iris lovers.
