Approximately one fourth of them are of horticultural merit, and some have attracted worldwide attention, such as paphiopedilums, cypripediums, pleiones and cymbidiums.

There are 791 colour photographs provided for the taxa treated, with many published for the first time such as Cypripedium micranthum Franch. and paphiopedilum emersonii Koopowitz et Cribb. Most of the photographs were taken by the authors themselves in the fields, especially Prof. Tsi Zhanhuo who has spent over ten years carrying out fieldwork in southern and southwestern China. A detailed description, both in Chinese and English, is given of each species and variety in the attempt to provide more useful information based mainly on the authors' firsthand materials. The genera and species are arranged alphabetically.
