Book News Annotation:

In this paperbound reprint of a 1992 book, Newsholme, holder of an Official National Collection of Willows in the UK, offers a thorough treatment of this diverse and graceful genus that ranges from tiny alpine forms to the statuesque weeping willow of wet meadows. Substantial information is included on the management and cultivation of willows. The encyclopedic portion is grouped into chapters according to growth habit; entries describe the species and cultivars in such a way as to be of great use to gardeners and are illustrated with b&w line drawings. Includes 65 good quality and well- chosen color plates. An excellent value for the price. Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
