Among the first titles published at Timber Press, and with more than
150,000 copies in print, Japanese Maples
is a classic. Japanese
maples are unlike any other tree. They boast a remarkable diversity of
color, form, and texture. As a result of hundreds of years of careful
breeding, they take the center stage in any garden they are found.
In the last decade, the number of Japanese maple cultivars
available to gardeners has doubled and there is a pressing need for an
up-to-date reference. This new fourth edition offers detailed
descriptions of over 150 new introductions, updates to plant
nomenclature, and new insights into established favorites. Gardeners
will relish the practical advice that puts successful cultivation
within everyone's grasp. Accurate identification is made simple with
over 600 easy-to-follow descriptions and 500 color photographs.
