About this book

Attractive, diverse, and easy to grow, rowans are ideal for a wide variety of gardens. Yet surprisingly, few are grown or even known about. The Genus Sorbus helps rectify this through describing over 60 species related to the familiar rowan Sorbus aucuparia, including recent introductions from China. Adorned with profuse flowers and fruits of pure white, crimson, pink, yellow and orange to red in spring, their visual appeal is amply demonstrated through The Genus Sorbus's 20 beautiful full-page colour plates.

The Genus Sorbus provides a wealth of new information on the genus. It will aid gardeners and horticulturists in the selection of the right species for a particular situation. Sections on propagation and cultivation are invaluable to gardeners and professional horticulturists, whilst the inclusion of its evolutionary history will be of great interest to botanists, biogeographers and plant collection enthusiasts.
