For decades, large swathes of the United States and Europe believed camellias to be altogther too tender for garden use, their exquisite blooms in pure colors giving the impression that they were too rarified and delicate to tangle with. Today, few gardens are without their share of camellias.

This encyclopedia is a comprehensive, one-stop reference for camellia enthusiasts at all levels. It provides information on how to grow and care for camellias as well as detailed descriptions of a handpicked selection of over 600 garden-worthy species and cultivars. The highly informed and truly international plant selection includes classic favorites as well as the latest introductions from around the world. Significant coverage is given to cold-hardy cultivars and there are chapters devoted to establishing camellias in the garden and growing them successfully in containers.

Over 800 enticing images will entice all gardeners to accommodate more of these exquisite plants.
