Climbers and shrubs constitute a large and important sector of ornamental horticulture. This authoritative, and sumptuously illustrated guide describes a very wide range of the climbers and shrubs of the Indian subcontinent, with notes on distribution and gardening. Besides the 31 colour and 99 monochrome plates, there are line drawings of the stem, leaves and flowers of all the 154 species treated. The book is designed to be useful not only to gardeners and nature enthusiasts but to botanists as well. Besides general descriptions, detailed botanical descriptions are also provided.
