"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.

It is obvious this book will be referred to time and time again to diagnose any problems I encounter with the genus.

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, 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.Alle Produktbeschreibungen

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.
