In a celebration of these wonderful shrubs, Pat Halliday presents the classification of the genus Rhododendron as proposed by the Royal Botanic Garden, Edinburgh, using as a medium the beautiful illustrations from Curtis's Botanical Magazine.

There are 121 plates representing all the subgenera, sections and series within this complex genus. The new text by Pat Halliday that accompanies each plate provides an account of the species in cultivation, history, distribution in the wild, habitat, relationship with other species and classification. The Illustrated Rhododendron is compulsive reading for rhododendron enthusiasts and provides a veritable feast of paintings by some of the finest botanical artists.
