    A celebration of one of the world’s richest temperate floras, this second edition is the most comprehensive single volume on the flowers of western China. Completely revised and updated, with over 2,700 plant descriptions presented in systematic order by family, each including details of the plant’s habitat, distribution, altitude and flowering time. Over 2,200 accompanying photographs offer a spectacular gallery of plants growing wild in China, with new additions for the second edition. Keys throughout the text aid correct identification, and the introduction describes the region, its provinces, geology, climate and vegetation.

    An essential guide for all those travelling to western China, this book is also an important reference work containing a vast amount of information on the countless Chinese plants grown in gardens all over the world. As such, it is of immense interest to gardeners, horticulturists, botanists, naturalists and those working to protect the region’s astonishing floral diversity.
