The book has a style reminiscent of the early 20th century. I am reminded, in fact, of my aunts and grandmother walking through their flower gardens and talking about each plant they encounter by the path.It is a charming book.However, it is not a visually attractive book. The inside has large print on inexpensive paper (in my edition anyway) and it does not feature colored photos. It is strictly a book for readers who have a good imagination, who can envision the use of each plant, and how it appears.This is not a real drawback to using the book if you plan to create a New Orleans style garden. There are plenty of sources with color photos.Another book which is one of my favorites is once again available and might be the one you prefer, by Roy Guste, "Secret Gardens of the Vieux Carre."
Very comprehensive and specific, which I needed. But contains no graphics of gardens or plants. Consider this a companion to other books that provide those features as well.
Good advice on gardening in the coastal regions of Louisiana. Also interesting history of gardens and plants of New Orleans.
