Timber Press is proud to announce a CD-ROM version of a distinguished horticultural reference: "The Color Encyclopedia of Ornamental Grasses on CD-ROM." More than just an electronic version of Rick Darke's critically acclaimed "Color Encyclopedia of Ornamental Grasses," the CD version includes nearly two dozen new plants and more than 200 striking color photos not found in the hardcover book. "The Color Encyclopedia of Ornamental Grasses on CD-ROM" is the most complete reference on ornamental grasses available in any format and a perfect companion to the celebrated book.
The CD-ROM contains 721 high-resolution color photos of grasses in gardens and the wild that can be printed for use in design work, plant identification, and nursery signage. It also includes an interactive USDA zone map to assist in choosing plants for cold hardiness. Other features include the ability to search for particular plants, to add notes directly to encyclopedia entries for personal use, and to mark important pages and photos for easy access.
"This electronic version [not only] offers much more flexibility in access, [it also] offers about 200 plants and 200 photographs not found in the book."--Choice, April 2002
