Description

Varying from tiny mountain shrubs to tall trees, there is a rowan suitable for every garden. Dr McAllister has 25 years of knowledge and experience in growing rowans, and in this book describes over 60 visually striking species, including recent introductions from China. The re-appraisal of classification, evolutionary history, ecology and conservation will bring botanists up to date on latest research, while sections on propagation and cultivation will prove invaluable to gardeners, nurserymen and horticulturists. Eighteen full-page paintings by the renowned artist Josephine Hague, and over 100 colour photographs, illustrate the text.



'This is a scholarly work, a Botanical Magazine monograph, and yet it is easily accessible to the gardener or grower.' Sue Tasker, Professional Gardener 111, April 2006



'A beautifully produced book with every conceivable aspect of the rowans covered, making it an invaluable manual for all botanists, plant collectors and commercial horticulturists.' Archie Miles, Tree News 11, Spring/Summer 2006
