    DescriptionCovering all recognized conifer cultivars and species, both hardy and tropical, the two volumes of this extensive and lavishly illustrated book feature names, synonyms, and brief descriptions--as well as information about height and spread after 10 years, where known--for more than 8,000 cultivars and all of the world's 615 conifer species, plus their subspecies and varieties. The descriptive text is complemented by thousands of color photographs taken specifically for this encyclopedia. The species descriptions follow the most recent botanical classification, with reference to the Royal Horticultural Society International Conifer Register and Checklist, including as-of-yet unpublished data.
