Good Source of Stock Landscape Plant Imagery?

I am assisting my employer with the development of a sales brochure.  They would like to have a section in this brochure that lists the most commonly available/used plants, along with an image. I am poking around the internet, but wanted to put the question to you folks as well.  There has to be a way to do this that is more cost effective than paying me to take 100+ photos! See More
