Higher Plants of China in Colour contains nearly 20,000, presenting the cream of wild higher plants and important cultivated plants in China, the species of which number more than 10,000. Each of the species is concisely introduced in both Chinese and English with such details as Chinese name, Latin name, morphological features, flowering and fruiting season, habitalt and distribution. Divided into nine volumes, this work includes 100 bryophyte families, 40 pteridophyte families, 11 gymnosperm families and 232 angiosperm families, 383 families altogether; the inclusion of all families is complete except for the bryophytes.

In order to present the diversity of China's plants systematically,botanists from China have made painstaking efforts to compile a series of large-volume floras including Iconographia Cormophytorum Sinicorum, Flora Reipublicae Popularis Sinicae (Chinese version) by themselves, and the Flora of China with the collaboration of international specialists. These books are well known both in China and abroad and have been used extensively for studing Chinese plants and plants from adjacent areas. These works present the results of plants taxonomic study and study of plant resources in China at different periods, and constitute some of the most important large classic volumes in the field of plant taxonomy.
 
However, in all these works the plants are only partly illustrated by black and white line drawings, and do not show the texture and colour of flowers and leaves fully in their natural state, and they hardly reveal the spectacular beauty and fascination of the wealth of plant species. This series meets that need.
