Synopsis

"The Jade Garden" is an authoritative guide to 130 of the most fascinating yet little-known ornamental trees, shrubs, and perennials from 'the green mantle' of Asia. Based on detailed research and observation at one of the largest and oldest collections of Asian plants in North America, the subjects of this book were chosen for their superior garden qualities, their rarity in everyday horticulture, and their commercial availability. From an extraordinary, nearly black geranium with reflexed petals, to a ground-creeping honeysuckle with bicolored flowers and blue berries, gardeners are sure to find something new and exciting in these pages. Although plants included are from the 'cutting edge' of plant exploration and discovery, the authors have included only those selections that have undergone thorough evaluation at the University of British Columbia Botanical Garden for hardiness and garden appeal. In addition, the authors have taken special care to exclude potentially invasive plants, allowing readers to be confident that any selection from the book will be an environmentally responsible one.

With many of its plants appearing in a garden book for the first time, "The Jade Garden" is certain to be a groundbreaking horticultural event.

Since 1975 Peter Wharton has been curator of the David C. Lam Asian Garden, a component of the University of British Columbia Botanical Garden and Centre for Plant Research. Peter's professional career has been centered on the development of this unique forest garden in concert with extensive plant exploration in China. Brent Hine has been curator of the E.H. Lohbrunner Alpine Garden at the University of British Columbia Botanical Garden and Centre for Plant Research since 1997. Away from the garden setting, the natural sciences - from the microscopic to the very macroscopic - have always held his interest. Douglas Justice is associate director and curator of collections at the University of British Columbia Botanical Garden and Centre for Plant Research. A teacher and writer with an abiding interest in all things green, he considers the knowledge of trees to be "way up there."
