About this book

Language: English

The book is a summary of the knowledge that the author has acquired during more than 60 years as botanist, landscape architect and nurseryman about clematis. The purpose is to give a historical review, its use and cultivation in gardens. It is also meant to present an ordered arrangement of descriptions of the species and cultivars.

The first part deals with history, horticultural aspects, and the cultivation and propagation of clematis. The second part on scientific description of clematis gives an overview of different characteristics in text and drawings. It presents a historical review of the classification by different scientists, with the author’s view at the end. In the third part, each section is introduced by a description of general characteristics, maps showing the distribution of the section and some comments on the use of Clematis in gardening.

Each description starts with literature references, several thousand in the book. ln total, 325 species with about 180 varieties and around 1400 cultivars are treated. The book contains 24 gouaches, about 100 illustrations from classical literature and ink drawings by the author. Colour pictures of around 170 species and cultivars are grouped systematically, largely following the order in the text.

There is a word-list for the basic terminology (200 words) in English-German-French and Swedish. Latin terms are also given.
