One of the best references I know is:

Young, J.A. and Young C.G.  1992.  Seeds of Woody Plants in North America.
Revised and Enlarged Ed.  Discorides Press, Portland OR. This book is
available through Timber Press, Portland OR.  It includes European species
which are commonly grown in the United States.
