Rhododendrons are a most versatile garden plant, large and evergreen, with glorious flowers and wonderful foliage, and the big-leaf species (Falconera and Grandia) take these attributes to a whole new level. All of the big-leaf rhododendrons known to date are covered in this book, including descriptions of each, how and where they were discovered, and by whom, as well as information on the public and private gardens around the world with the best collections, and what new species are still being discovered. International expert on the genus Graham Smith and garden writer Glyn Church, both New Zealand-based, also give practical advice on growing these spectacular plants in your own garden, and how to create the best conditions in which to enjoy them. Illustrated with over 190 photographs, the majority of these from photographer Pat Greenfield.
