|HATCH'S CULTIVARS OF WOODY PLANTS
is widely regarded as the most complete encyclopedia of tree,
shrub, and vine cultivars ever written. Based of horticultural
taxonomist Larry Hatch's 35 years of study, this massive reference
includes thousands of high-res images and 20-230% more cultivars than
leading references in most genera.
CWP not only offers detailed descriptions but includes individual cultivar histories, literature references, selected clickable nursery links (new cultivars), and identification charts and keys based on original research. The monograph THE REDBUDS is included and covers over 91 taxa of Cercis. Cultivar counts include 59 Abelia, 1031 Acer, 159 Aucuba, 207 Buddleia, 31 Clethra, 188 Cornus kousa, 109 Fagus, 103 Ginkgo, 60 Nandina., and 224 Viburnum.
To add conifers to CWP please order PINETUM NOVUM.
$49.00 for one year access.
|STILL JUST $25.00
PINETUM NOVUM is the most complete portable PDF Conifer Enycyclopedia ever written and is the product of Mr. Hatch's 35 years devoted to conifer research, culminating in his 1983 Master of Science Degree on the Taxonomy of Juniperus horizontalis cultivars. He studied 53 cultivars and now PINETUM NOVUM has 94 in that low, durable species. Why would we need another conifer encyclopedia? Because this one is the most complete for many genera including 207 cultivars (298 names) in Cryptomeria, 41 Metasequoia, 93 Sciadopitys cultivars (by far a new record), 44 Sequoia, 85 Sequoiadendron, more than 400 Thuja/Platycladus, 354 Taxus, and more than 687 Juniperus cultivars. Our section on Juniperus virginana and J. scopulorum alone is 75 pages of 8 x 10 size. Our Pinus cultivar section is 60.2 megabytes (in three download-friendly volumes) so many are the descriptions and photos.
PINETUM NOVUM is not just a listing of names with links to Google images. It is not a checklist because 98% of the named taxa are described in rich detail and with Mr. Hatch's attention to nomenclature as a much respected Horticultural Taxonomist. Many hundreds of high-res digital images (most 1000-1250 pixels wide) are original and show rare specimens not before found or known about. It is the go-to reference of many curators, plant evaluation experts, collectors, and researchers around the world. For starters we have 27% more cultivars than the recent RHS Encyclopedia of Conifers. PINETUM NOVUM is portable in PDF so it goes on just about every phone, tablet, book reader, netbook, laptop, desktop, or other device you have - about 334 different systems in all. It can go with you to the nursery, garden center, garden/arboretum, or client's home. This offer includes the GARDEN JUNPERS monograph also offered separately.

You will also have exclusive access to comment on the contents and submit any changes or additions to our scientific editors - and we know many of you asking about this work are experts in more than one genus. Thirdly, the new early view edition has material available before to society members. Your subscription price will be added 100% to the research fund to complete the remaining pages. Inorder to complete the project, the editors have all agreed to defer their royalties until completion in 2017.
