Kurzbeschreibung
Unrivaled in the temperate latitudes of the world, China’s rich flora comprises 30,000 species of plants, and nowhere is this floral richness more evident than in western China. With its lush forests, meandering rivers, and majestic mountains, the west of China has been a center of plant exploration for over two centuries, giving rise to many well-known species of trees, shrubs, perennials, and bulbs that populate our parks and botanical institutes, including rhododendron, orchids, peonies, and roses.

Guide to the Flowers of Western China describes and illustrates more than two thousand species, from the common to the endemic to the extremely rare. Plant families are arranged following the latest DNA-based classification, making this pictorial guide— the largest and most comprehensive on western China ever published—essential for gardeners and plant scientists.

Celebrating the wealth of western China’s vast flora, this magnificent volume will enable the horticulturally inclined traveler (or armchair traveler) to identify many of the plants encountered in the wild.

The extent and diversity of China's rich flora is unrivalled in temperate latitudes of the world, with some 30,000 species of plants. Nowhere is this floral richness better seen than in the west of the country. With its diverse scenery, lush forests, huge rivers and massive mountains, western China has been the centre of plant exploration for two centuries, yielding remarkable numbers of species of Clematis, Gentiana, Primula, Rhododendron as well as hundreds of orchids, poppies, camellias, peonies and roses. Our gardens are full of trees, shrubs, perennials and bulbs of Chinese origin.

Today much of China is open for travellers to visit and enjoy the amazing variety of scenery and the vast, rich plantlife.

This exceptional new pictorial flora for western China describes and illustrates over 2,400 plants, and whilst providing a field guide to many of the commoner and colourful elements of the flora, it also includes many endemics and plants of great rarity. For the traveller, horticulturist or gardener it is the perfect reference, containing the largest collection of photographs of Chinese plants ever published. With the arrangement of the plant families following the latest DNA-based classification, it will also meet the discerning needs of plant scientists.
