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. Genera and species are sold as separate volumes due to size of photos and data.
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.
All the newest cultivars from 2012 to 2016 are included in the massive revision of an earlier volume.

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.
OROC was formed to remedy the lack of an worldwide catalog of new cultivars because existing patent, trademark, and ICRA agencies barely account for 5% of the available new material. By reason, patented plants are only those likely to be very popular or from larger firms who can pay the free, not collector's items, most university items, nor smaller nurseries.
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.
