'Continuing the standard firmly set by previous volumes this latest provides botanists and gardeners with the means of identifying many of those plants cultivated out of doors as well as under glass in the gardens, parks and aboreta of Europe. It will be equally helpful to those gardening in North America and other countries, especially those of the temperate world ... As the world's leading gardening nation we should be proud that such a major source of knowledge should be made possible by the the foresight and dedication of a British publisher. The list of contributors meanwhile reflects the international involvement and co-operation which increasingly facilitates, if not motivates, our research into garden plants.' Roy Lancaster, The HorticulturalistReseña del editor:
The European Garden Flora is the definitive manual for the accurate identification of cultivated ornamental plants and has been designed to meet the highest scientific standards. The vocabulary has nevertheless been kept as uncomplicated as possible so that the work is fully accessible to the informed nurseryman, gardener and landscape architect, as well as to the professional botanist. Volume V contains accounts of ninety families of Dicotyledons, including large, horticulturally important genera such as Rhododendron, Begonia, Primula and Fuschia. Comprehensive keys are provided at the level of family, genus and species and line diagrams are included to illustrate important diagnostic features of critical taxa. Reference is made to useful illustrations and taxonomic accounts, and a small amount of guidance on cultivation is provided for each genus.
