The Islands' benign and varied microclimates have accepted plants from many different places, ranging from humid jungle rain forests to arid deserts, and from seacoasts sprayed with salt to mountainsides of almost Andean heights.

All of these exotics have proved successful for the amateur gardener in Hawaii, including several unusual new varieties and cultivars, only recently made available commercially...Each plant discussed is illustrated with a full-page color photograph by Rick Golt. The accompanyin g text gives a complete description of the plant, the origin of its name, its practical uses, required growing conditions, horticulturaists practical uses, required growing conditions, horticultural and landscape uses, propagation, insect and disease control, pruining, fertilizing, and significant disadvantages.

18 Coon, Nelson. Fragrance and Fragrant Plants for House and Garden.
Grandview, Missouri: Diversity Books, Inc., 1967. Review copy, with Publisher's note laid-in. 
Signed by the Author. Octavo, purple cloth (hardcover), silver letters, 235 pp. Very Good, with neat former-owner signature and stamps, foxing (age darkened spotting) to page edges and endpapers); in a Very Good dust jacket with light edgewear and foxing. From dust jacket: Nelson Coon has brought to this book his long experience working with blind people and has not only supplied useful lists of fragrant plants in many categories, but has furnished background material for the numerous ways fragrances may be employed and enjoyed. In the opening chapters he explains the workings of the sense of smell...and he discusses the place of this sense in the lives of animals and man. Chapters on such subjects as Sex and the Sense of Smell, The Function of Fragrance in Religion, Therapy through Fragrance, Spice Trade in the Twentieth Century, and The Invisible Garden, are some of the subjects which are interestingly explored in the first part of the book. The second part of the book gives descriptive listings of fragrant plants, trees and shrubs for all gardens -- big or small -- indoors or outdoors. Finally, there is an excellent chapter on Poppourri for Lasting Fragrance.

19 Coon, Nelson. Gardening for Fragrance, Indoors and Out.
New York: Hearthside Press Inc., (1970). 
Octavo, red boards (hardcover), 239 pp. Former-owner's published review pasted to rear endpaper; otherwise, Very Good+, with neat former-owner stamp & signature; in a Near-Fine dust jacket with darkened spine. From dust jacket: The many-faceted wonders of fragrance are fully explored in this scent-of-flowers and scent-in-general book, opening new horizons in appreciation and knowledge of the subtle sense, and adding a new dimension to planting and gardening. One part of Nelson Coon's comprehensive study of fragrance in plant cultivation deals exhaustively and usefully with garden, home and greenhouse plants that emit fragrance. The book fills a hitherto vacant spot in American garden libraries for, as the author notes, there was an urgent need to update earlier lists of fragrant plants which, all to often, have been written by English authors, who have listed many plants unsuitable for growing in the United States. The categories included encompass trees, sweet-scented shrubs, vines, climbers, herbaceous border plants, herbs, bulbs, fragrant growths for window gardens, greenhouses and rock gardens; for some the most enticing indoor fragrance imaginable, potpourris, again in high favor, receive extended treatment, as do the subject of roses. And in a nother part, a fascinating book-within-a-book, the author discusses the entire subject of fragrance in its physiological, psychological and historical aspects. Our sense of smell -- the way in which we do and don't use it -- in sex, religion, psychotherapy, environmental contexts -- and what it means to those deprived of the more conspicuous senses -- all of this receives compact but wonderfully illuminating treatment...
