The ultimate book about the aristocrat of trees.
Among the first titles published at Timber Press, and with more than 150,000 copies in print, Japanese Maples is a classic. Japanese maples are unlike any other tree. They boast a remarkable diversity of colour, form, and texture. As a result of hundreds of years of careful breeding, they take centre stage in any garden they are found.
In the last decade, the number of Japanese maple cultivars available to gardeners has doubled and there is a pressing need for an up-to-date reference. This new fourth edition offers detailed descriptions of over 150 new introductions, updates to plant nomenclature, and new insights into established favorites. Gardeners will relish the practical advice that puts successful cultivation within everyone's grasp. Accurate identification is made simple with over 600 easy-to-follow descriptions and 500 colour photographs.
This volume is indispensable to all who love Japanese maples, and is highly recommended.
A timely update of the original 1978 classic.
