Written by three distinguished clematis experts, the Timber Press Pocket Guide to Clematis profiles 300 stunning plants from an international selection of gardenworthy species and hybrids, from long-time favourites to the highly sought-after new cultivars coming out of Poland, Estonia, Latvia and Japan. All of the plants are readily available at clematis nurseries, including 100 award winners which have proven themselves to experienced and inexperienced gardeners alike. Specific cultivation information is given for each plant, including hardiness, light and temperature needs and time of flowering. Illustrated with 320 photographs of flowers at the height of bloom, when their true colour is best seen, this pocket guide is a valuable complement to the authors' Illustrated Encyclopedia of Clematis and a compact reference for taking to the nursery or garden centre.

The famous Timber Press Pocket Guides are always first-rate and this particular one does not disappoint. ... It must have been a daunting task, indeed, to condense the selection of Clematis, but what a success!
