Description:

The third in the acclaimed series of RHS Horticultural Monographs covers all species and cultivars of Wisteria. This book reveals the fascinating horticulture, botany and history of perhaps the most glamorous and spectacular of all hardy garden plants. All five species are described in detail, and there is a key to aid identification. Nearly 100 of the most widely grown and recent cultivars are illustrated and fully described. There is also an overview of the largest and oldest wisterias in the world. The depiction of wisterias in Oriental art through the ages is explored and there is a detailed history of the introduction of wisterias to cultivation. The individuals and nurseries who have raised new Wisteria cultivars are discussed. The botany and classification of the genus, including recent molecular discoveries is explored. Advice on cultivation, pruning, propagation and dramatic ways to use wisterias in gardens is given. The book finishes with a checklist of around 350 cultivars and scientific names, with synonymy and other valuable information including introducers, dates and descriptions.
