Thumbs up Good Freshwater Plant Guides/Books

Im new to this forum and very new to the hobby. I looked around the threads and wasnt able to find any threads on any books or guides for plants. So if i missed it my apologies.
Im really looking for a good book. With pictures of the most popular species and a general description of needs.
I have a 75 gallon set up with various plants that i went crazy on at my local store. So now just looking for information on them, ideally to identify some of them since i was told the long names and sometimes have trouble remembering my own name. So have since forgotten them.
I dived head long into this and am super excited to learn and grow my aquarium into many more. Thanks in advance folks.

Head to your local library and use search terms such as aquarium, fish, or aquarium plants biotopes.

Best current plant book?

"You Killed Fritz!"

Bakshi references are always cool!
