Tales of the Rose Tree: Ravishing Rhododendrons and Their Travels Around the World
Jane Brown (au)
200 years ago the rhododendron was dragged to Britain from its natural habitat in the Sino-Himalayas by British collectors. Some of the species mutated, others proved hardy & easy to hybridize, & today the rhododendron has made a greater impact on the English landscape than any other plant. Brown reveals the rose tree’s own story which reaches back thousands, of years. The Aztecs favored it for their pleasure gardens, the Chinese use it in medicines, it has even excited royal passions & been the source of personal impassioned feuds. From the heat of Kashmir to the Alpine peaks of New Zealand, the rhododendron has cut a colorful dash across the globe, & has moved in the company of mountaineers, empire-builders, botanists & aristocracy. Color ill.
