I bought this book recently and it is a simple read with descriptions of common garden plants in Singapore. Published by National Parks, it is neatly organised and easy to read.

Tropical trees and shrubs : a selection for urban planting

Sun Tree Publishing, 2003. [Singapore]

My friends gave to me this book as a birthday present. What i like about this book is the little snippets and stories about each tree such as its medicinal value and its local variant names. Definitely not a boring read. Some of the pictures look pretty dated though !!
