A New book release from The Royal Horticultural Society, Wisley, Surrey, England

The Royal Horticultural Society Encyclopedia of Conifers.
A comprehensive guide to cultivars and species by Aris G. Auders and Derek P. Spicer.

Publication date: 1st Q 2012
www.coniferworld.com

This two-volume, lavishly and extensively illustrated encyclopedia is a much needed, complete reference book covering all recognised conifer cultivars and species, both hardy and tropical. The 1,200-page work features names,synonyms, and brief descriptions,as well as information about height and spread after 10 years, where known, for over 8,000 cultivars and all 615 conifer species, plus their subspecies and varieties. Apart from the descriptive text, it is illustrated with more than 5,000 photographs, which have been taken especially for this encyclopedia.

The species and their descriptions follow the most recent botanical classification (Farjon, 2010) and the cultivar information has been compiled with reference to the RHS International Conifer Register and Checklist, including as yet unpublished data. There is unique appendix listing all the principle conifer collectors, nurseries, arboreta and individuals responsible for introducing new cultivars over the last three centuries. The book is designed to meet the needs of professional as well as amateur gardeners.

Aris G. Auders, a conifer collector and photographer from Latvia, and Derek P. Spicer, chairman of the British Conifer Society, have been working on this book for 7 years. The authors have been assisted by Lawrie Springate, RHS International Conifer Cultivar Registrar (2004–2009) and Victoria Matthews, RHS International Registrar.

Author and broadcaster Roy Lancaster states in the Foreward: The authors are committed and knowledgeable conifer enthusiasts who have been supported by a wealth of international expertise and experience. The book is claimed to be the most comprehensive account of its kind. Its authors and their helpers have delivered a truly monumental account of a major group of woody plants.
