Editorial Reviews

Review

"An interesting discussion of hawthorns and medlars in folklore ... One of the most attractive features of the book is a series of 75 color plates of flowers and fruits of many species, as well as a few related subjects."
—F. G. Dennis Jr., Choice, June 2004

Book Description

Most hawthorns are vastly underappreciated as ornamental subjects, but given their interesting biology, cultural history, and uses in cookery and folklore, these fascinating trees and shrubs are long overdue their own book. This book focuses on those hawthorns (genus Crataegus) and medlars (genus Mespilus) of greatest interest to horticulturists, some 70 wild species, many of which are seldom cultivated outside botanic gardens.
