The Illustrated Encyclopedia of Camellias is the illustrated guide to these beautiful and varied flowering plants. Stirling Macoboy presents over 1000 of the world's most popular camellias, with every entry illustrated by a color photograph. The book opens with a chapter on the species that comprise the large and varied genus Camellia. The major species in cultivation are then covered in the A-Z sections: sasanquas, japonicas and Higos, reticulatas, with a chapter on 'the camellias of the future', the hybrids. Each entry describes the flower type and gives the flowering season, parentage, date of registration, synonyms and any relevant breeding and historical information. Following these sections is a comprehensive chapter on camellia cultivation.
