I endorse Lee's view on 'Plant' - a good and interesting book, produced in 
association with Kew. It is not free from errors, though, so must be used 
cautiously. One that particularly jars is the use of Crocus sativa for 
Saffron Crocus (C. sativus is correct). I notice also an image of a drift of 
a white-flowered Erythronium captioned 'Erythronium grandiflorum Also known 
as the yellow avalanche lily...' Not much coordination between caption 
writing and image selection there!
