Hatch's Cultivars of Woody Plants was started more than 35 years when the author Larry Hatch noticed there were no complete cultivar listings of trees, shrubs, and vines as there had been in the past with authors like Krussman and Bean. Since that time, Mr. Hatch has worked every single week to update the files with no cultivars, improve older data, and this has results in over 4000 pages of very detailed, content
This 2017 update now detains new cultivar registrations from the OROC or Open Registration Of Cultivars program.
Cultivars of Woody Plants was started over 35 years ago by horticultural taxonomist Larry Hatch who was concerned that no modern authors were actually cataloging the new cultivars on a worldwide basis. Since the days of Krussman and Bean, no exhaustive reviews with lots of taxonomic and historical detail existed. And those did not have color images of any real size and usefulness. It was time to supplement the old classics and keep it updated every year or two.
