Recommendation for good Tree Identification books
Just bought a house with an established garden containing many trees and shrubs with which I am not familiar.
Can anyone recommend some good identification books (for both deciduous and evergreen trees) that have really good photos or drawings of the foliage characteristics?
For instance there is a large (approx 10') multi-stemmed shrub/small tree with large oval furry/felted and veined leaves, just coming into flower now in mid August. Terminal clusters of small white star-shaped flowers with yellow anthers. No fragrance. My first guess would be a viburnum but are there any viburnums that flower this late? or with fuzzy leaves??
I am also hopeless with conifers/evergreens and there are a LOT of those. :-/
Book suggestions please? Thanks! :-)
