  Garden Bookworm editor's notes:  
No garden is complete without examples of the genus Clematis. Christopher Grey-Wilson’s Clematis: The Genus is the most comprehensive study of the genus ever undertaken in English. The vigorous montanas and tanguticas, the familiar jackmanii hybrids and rarer plants such as the touch-sensitive Clematis aphylla are all covered in authoritative detail.

Clematis are — perhaps surprisingly — members of the Ranunculaceae or Buttercup family. All the species are covered both in the wild and in cultivation, and illustrated with 100 color photographs. There are also analyses of many of the cultivars. Maps show the distribution of all the species in the wild. The text is accessible to all serious gardeners, as well as the botanist or plant person.
