Pressestimmen

A ground-breaking and worthy text. -- Dick Bir "American Gardener" (09/01/2005)

A wonderful new book... [with] hundreds of pictures. -- Joan Lowell Smith "Newark Star-Ledger" (05/15/2005)

Shadow and Cappiello demonstrate how much Dogwoods can do and outline requirements for these versatile plants.

It is a well researched and complete text for professionals and homeowners. -- Joel M. Lerner "Washington Post" (07/25/2005)

This book should be a bible for nurserymen and a source of fascination and information for the gardener. -- Bill Andrus "East Oregonian" (03/27/2005)

This long-needed work brings us up to speed on the latest and best cultivars emerging from dogwood breeding programs across the country and around the world.

A book for both the serious student and interested gardener... beautiful, well written, and quite comprehensive. -- Jeneen Wiche "Shelbyville Sentinel-News" (06/01/2005)

The book is beautifully photographed, with excellent pictures to help the gardener discern types of dogwoods just by looking. -- Jo Ellen Meyers Sharp "Indianapolis Star" (10/08/2005)

Beneath each species, Cappeillo and Shadow alphabetically arrange the plant's cultivars, forms, and varieties... this wealth of information is accompanied by 238 stunning color photographs. -- George Cohen "Booklist" (03/15/2005)

The book will appeal to a wide range of plants people, from professional nurserymen to amateur gardeners. The writing is warm, personable and friendly--yet packed with...useful horticultural knowledge. -- Mary Tucker "Nativescape" (09/13/2005)

Particularly valuable for its description and illustration of so many named forms, particularly of "Cornus kousa," "C. florida," and their hybrids ... a very good introduction to the genus. -- Martyn Rix "International Dendrology Society Yearbook" (01/01/2004)

The strength of this book is the excellent detailed description of the many different plants in each of the categories. They mince no words when describing the plants...I should have owned this book 50 years ago. -- Dorothy Rodal "Hardy Plant Society of Oregon Bulletin" (08/23/2005)

is almost an over-the-rainbow sort of listing, spanning five groups from ground covers and shrubs to trees. The book, with pictures taken mostly by Cappiello, offers the adventuresome gardener a lifetime of possibilities to plant. -- Diane Heilenman "Louisville Courier-Journal" (03/15/2005)

"Dogwoods" is the perfect guidebook for determining the type of dogwood best suited for one's garden and highly recommended for anyone interested in cultivating these beautiful plants. A highly informative species-by-species detail, intended especially for gardeners but accessible to lay readers as well.

It is obvious this book will be referred to time and time again to diagnose any problems I encounter with the genus. Nurserymen, landscape architects, in fact all who come into contact or grow these plants will find this book an essential one to have and refer to it, over and over again. I am so pleased to have a copy. -- John E. Bryan "Gardening Newsletter" (10/01/2005)

If you are a dogwood collector this is a must book for you. -- George Graine "Virginia Master Gardeners Association Report" (01/01/2005)

I started out reading this book in a precursory fashion to write a review, i.e. not reading all; then I found myself reading large sections, addicted to the mention of the greats.

Dogwoods is an unprecedented guide to the diversity of plants available in nurseries today. Written in engaging and informative prose, this book will be treasured by generations of gardeners.

You'll find practical advice for growing dogwoods as well as a mind-blowing variety of them in [this] dauntingly thorough book. -- Valerie Easton "Seattle Times" (05/19/2006)

Synopsis

Dogwoods, a diverse, widespread and enormously popular group of woody plants, represent some of the most appealing flowering trees available to gardeners. It is surprising that no book has been devoted to describe all of the varieties available. Paul Cappiello and Don Shadow fill that longstanding gap with this definitive reference. Aimed at both amateur gardeners and professional horticulturalists, this book covers all dogwoods currently available in nurseries. On top of the 200 colour photos that help with identification and plant selection, the authors offer helpful details on cultivation, combating pests and diseases, and the fundamentals of breeding and selection. Dogwoods is an unprecedented guide to the diversity of plants in the genus Cornus which are available in nurseries today. It will fill a key gap in knowledge about these popular plants.

Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Der Cornus - vor allem Cornus kousa, florida, mas, controversa, officinalis und einige weitere - sind fantastische Gartenbäume: Oft traumhafter Habitus, schöne (Schein-)Blüten, teilweise attraktive Früchte, ansprechendes Laub, hübsche Herbstfärbung und auch für kleinere Gärten geeignet. Wer sich über die vielen Hartriegelarten informieren will, ist mit diesem Buch gut bedient. Besser kann man es nämlich nicht machen: Die beiden amerikanischen Cornus-Spezialisten tragen alles zusammen, was es über gartenwürdige Hartriegel zu wissen lohnt. Man erhält Informationen zur Züchtung, Auswahl und Pflege; hauptsächlich werden aber die vielen Arten und Sorten in Text und Bild vorgestellt. Die Texte sind, wie nicht anders zu erwarten, kompetent, die Fotos ausgezeichnet.

HASH(0x919db8d0) von 5 Sternen Best Source for Cultivar Info 30. November 2005
Von David W. Pittelli - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This comprehensive book is a must for anyone considering raising or breeding dogwoods. Indeed, anyone setting aside the money and space for a dogwood tree should first look at this book, or perhaps one other: The only source I know of that comes close is the "Manual of Woody Landscape Plants" by Michael A. Dirr. Naturally, this book, which looks only at dogwoods, includes some cultivars not covered by Dirr, and has about 2 or 3 times as much text as Dirr does for each cultivar.

The sort of info covered? Depth of information varies, but basically: Breeder or introducer; whether it's a sport of another named variety; height, width and form; flower, berry and foliage description (size, color and shape); flower density; blooming period; often word on resistance or otherwise to various fungi; patent number, if applicable (some varieties are not yet patented or even available for sale, but are included due to the authors' opinion of their superior merit); and whether the cultivar is a "bogus" name or copy of another cultivar.

This book also has lovely photos (The Dirr book has only some line drawings, although Dirr has other, also excellent books, with color photos, but which are far less comprehensive). Not every variety has a photo; many have just a close-up of a flower with bracts; others include a photo of the overall look of the tree in bloom, or with autumn color, or close-ups of autumn berries. It really helps to have 3 or 4 photos to judge a cultivar properly. If one were to fault the book for anything it would be for not having 3 big photos for all of the (non-bogus) cultivars, but then it would weigh -- and cost -- twice as much.

HASH(0x919dbb64) von 5 Sternen An in-depth guide to dogwood trees and shrubs 13. Mai 2005
Von Midwest Book Review - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Written by the former horticulture director of the Bernheim Arboretum and award-winning gardener and horticulture expert Don Shadow, Dogwoods is an in-depth guide to dogwood trees and shrubs, which have been immensely popular as ornamental plants especially since the 18th and 19th centuries. Offering an overview of all dogwoods of horticultural note, including species of trees, shrubs and groundcovers, and illustrated with more than two hundred gorgeous, full-color photographs, Dogwoods is the perfect guidebook for determining the type of dogwood best suited for one's garden and highly recommended for anyone interested in cultivating these beautiful plants. A highly informative species-by-species detail, intended especially for gardeners but accessible to lay readers as well. All gardeners would be well advised to send for the free Timber Press catalog for a complete listing of their titles.

HASH(0x919fe918) von 5 Sternen Great photography and references on dogwood 16. Oktober 2008
Von Conservative Gardener - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Very high quality photography and high quality writing and organization. I don't believe there's a competitive book on the subject and it's unlikely that an author will be motivated to exceed the quality of this book. I am not an expert on dogwoods, and this book has encouraged me to grow more dogwood species.

HASH(0x91a045f4) von 5 Sternen Comprehensive description of cultivars 17. März 2006
Von Gomero - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
The book contains a good description of Dogwood cultivars. I found it useful for identification purposes. Pathologies affecting Cornus are also well described. On the other hand I found that cultural techniques are insufficiently addressed.

HASH(0x91a046cc) von 5 Sternen Good, thorough, but not thorough enough! 19. Mai 2008
Von William S. Huckleberry - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
It's a great book for plant geeks and more casual gardners as well. Unfortunately, I think it's written from the perspective of a Southern gardner, so the information is often very much slanted to dogwwod growers from the South and to a lesser extent, the East Coast. I live in the Pacfic NW and I was looking for some in-depth information on our native dogwoods, the Pacific Flowering Dogwood and Bunchberry (Red Osier dogwood is hard to kill here so I didn't need too much help with it). Their discussion of the Pacific Dogwood is very brief, taking up about one page. Same goes for Bunchberry. With both species, they determine that they're very hard to grow in the South. Oh well, it's still a good book with lots of good information and beautiful photos. If you are a fan of the Eastern and Asian dogwood varieties, this is the book for you!
