About this book

New to Kew's Botanical Magazine Monograph series, The Genus Tulipa is the most complete survey of tulip species to date. Each species is illustrated by a botanical painting by artist and author Diana Everett, with accompanying colour photographs of the plants in habitat and distribution maps. The high level of detail provided in The Genus Tulipa: Tulips of the World makes identification possible for the many species of tulips.

In addition, there are contributing chapters by Kew's experts. The chapter on tulip cultivation is provided by Richard Wilford, collections manager in the Hardy Display section at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew. A taxonomic review is provided by Mike Fay, Head of Genetics, Jodrell Laboratory at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew.

Additional material includes check lists of tulip species and their synonyms, as well as country by country check list; glossary with diagrams; information on nurseries selling tulips; and full bibliography.

A source of visual delight, The Genus Tulipa: Tulips of the World will appeal to gardeners, growers, botanists, students, academic libraries, botanical institutions, botanical art enthusiasts, and tulip enthusiasts.

  • lack of distribution maps

    Beautiful book but in contrast to what you advertise there are no distribution maps for the species, which I find disappointing! and a real handicap.
