9780881926743: Trees for All Seasons: Broadleaved Evergreens for Temperate Climates

It's simple: broadleaved evergreens are trees that don't lose their leaves. And despite their versatility and beauty, they are often underused. Why? Most people, including knowledgeable gardeners, equate evergreens with conifers—and Christmas trees— rather than broadleaved plants. And many of the most attractive broadleaved evergreens have only recently become commercially available. Sean Hogan—one of America's most respected and well-known horticulturists—aims to correct the problem with this groundbreaking title. Ten years of research has gone into the detailed descriptions and photographs of more than 300 choice trees. Hogan opens our eyes to a largely unexplored world of foliar beauty—from China, Japan, Korea, and Taiwan to Australia, Tasmania, and New Zealand; from Chile and Argentina to Mexico and the western United States. Among the profiled plants are the drought-tolerant, russetbarked manzanitas; the finely textured, glossy-leaved azaras; and the exquisitely fragrant michelias. Also included are little-known gems from such well-known genera as the hollies and oaks. Hogan has filled an obvious gap in horticultural literature. By bringing to light hundreds of exciting plants that have the potential to transform gardens, he also performs an outstanding service.

About the Author:

Sean Hogan is the co-founder of Cistus Design in Portland, Oregon. He was formerly a horticulturist at the University of California, Berkeley Botanic Garden, where he managed the New World Desert, Australia/New Zealand, Africa, and California-cultivar gardens. He is a frequent contributor to horticultural journals such as the Rock Garden Quarterly and Pacific Horticulture.

Review:

“The strength of this volume lies in the inclusion of many relatively unknown species of horticultural interest. This information could be extremely useful in the quest to grow plants that are ecologically appropriate for an area.” —Booklist

“If global warming is inevitable, as it seems, this book may provide the proverbial silver lining for cool-climate gardeners.” —American Gardener

“This book could qualify as a coffee-table book; the layout and the photographs are lush enough. But there is a lot of information there. I know, because I have just read every word.” —Washington Gardener

“Timber Press and Sean are to be congratulated for producing another handsome, engaging, and beautifully photographed book for our garden libraries.” —Pacific Horticulture

“Sean Hogan is brought to long-overdue British attention by this publication. . . . Introduces us to a swathe of underused plants that, in a climate-change world, will become increasingly important.” —Daily Telegraph

“At last here is a book that will help gardeners of all abilities to choose a broadleaved evergreen that will be much more than background plant.” —Gardens Illustrated

“Whether you still have room to plant a tree and need a reliable guide, or if you just like deepening your knowledge of trees, this book will inform, reward and entertain.” —Hardy Plant Society of Oregon Bulletin

“I am a sucker for tree books, so I cannot resist Sean Hogan’s Trees for All Seasons. . . . ‘Most people, including knowledgeable gardeners, equate evergreens with conifers—and Christmas trees—rather than broadleaved plants,’ says Hogan. He aims to correct that with this guide to more than 300 small choice trees.” —Vancouver Sun
