All the newest cultivars from 2012 to 2016 are included in the massive revision of an earlier volume.
Cultivars of Woody Plants is the product of more than 35 years of research by leading horticultural taxonomic Larry Hatch and is unique among all woody plant manuals for it's vast array of cultivars.
Hatch's Cultivars of Woody Plants has been developed over 35 years by leading horticultural taxonomist Larry Hatch and now covers more than 2100 pages.
Hatch's Perennials 3.1 was expanded to produce a truly valuable discussion of today's best cultivars, their histories, and details that make each cultivar unique (or not).
Hatch's Cultivars of Woody Plants has been developed over 35 years by leading horticultural taxonomist Larry Hatch and now covers more than 2100 pages. It is the largest encyclopedia of ornamental, landscape tree, shrub, and vine varieties, most described in detail with their history, nomenclature, and landscape uses discussed.Numerous high-resolution digital images accompany the entries.
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.
More than 30 years ago horticultural taxonomist Larry Hatch wondered why there was no updated perennial encyclopedia with all the new cultivars from both Europe and the US as well as rarities from Asia, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa. Not finding such a work, he created Hatch's Perennials which now spans more than 2000 pages of richly, detailed material.
Lacking an active, effective international process and accomplishment in cataloging new woody plants, the OROC program serves as the only active means of 100% free communication of these new landscape plants. In our role with the assistance of Cultivar.org, we continue to seek new ornamental plants and document their traits, history, and parentage.
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
With 38.6 megabytes and 135 pages on content this volume is one of the core necessities in the series.
Some users of our previous editions said "PlotBank was my cure for writer's block...I read, I laughed...then got back to work" and "every page charges me with new, fresh ideas". One successful author told us "I always find something I can use to form the core of a scene...I hope no one else is finding these." Topics range from sitcom standards to strange, curious things from the author's very creative mind. You'll find humorous, diabolically criminal, technologically current , silly, sad, and just plain weird story topics
to make your story interesting and fresh. This new third addition contains thousands more ideas and includes a very detailed, textbook-like first chapter on how to form, layer, and make plots all your own. Fun and profit await.
