Plantsman's Paradise - Travels in China
This book successfully combines a most enjoyable and detailed account of the well-known author's many journeys through China. First and foremost, Travels in China provides a practical assessment of the plants that are either of ornamental merit or botanical interest to gardeners in the West. Roy Lancaster follows in the footsteps of the great Victorian plant hunters and describes, in this, his magnus opus, some 1,000 different plants in their natural habitat. He has provided an eminently readable account of a fascinating country, its people, and the plants which have done so much to enrich the gardens of Europe and North America. With a newly revised text and hundreds of Lancaster's own attractive and colorful photographs, many of them new to this edition, are interspersed with fascinating descriptions and anecdotes from his travels.
