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.
Hatch's Cultivars of Woody Plants (CWP) is not as widely known as some popular manuals and encyclopedia but it's readers know it for far more detailed cultivar descriptions, their histories, identification tips that work, and many more cultivars, together with very large, high-res digital images that no print publisher could afford to send out. That is why CWP is now over 2100 pages in compact PDF format.
It has been over 30 years since anyone has produced a truly comprehensive review of house plant and interior landscaping varieties. This project started in 2000 by horticultural taxonomist Larry Hatch and the New Ornamentals Society has matured and is now available for the first time to the public in 2015.
Hatch;s Perennials is a 35 year project of taxonomist Larry Hatch to catalog and document cultivars of hardy herbaceous plants in a thorough way not done in more than 80 years by any author. With more than 1200 pages of detailed content, version 3.1 remains one of the most complete plant encyclopedias ever published.
This volume is part of Hatch's Perennials 20016-2017, the largest project ever to catalog garden varieties of hardy herbaceous perennials and now with over 1200 pages of content available.
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.
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
