"This is a a splendid work with a load of good colour pictures which show the great variety in a species....the close up pictures are outstanding. ...a treasury of information."

Kurt Hansen Rhododendron-Nyt (Denmark). 

"The Cox & Cox comprehensive, covering all the species. It incorporates the latest research. It has at least one colour photograph of each species and , above all, it is readable. In my opinion it will set the standard for the next 25 years"

Joe Harvey, Victoria Rhododendron Society Newsletter, Canada. 

"To put it simply at the outset; this is the book that I didn't know that I had been waiting for. This book covers the temperate rhododendron species so beautifully, thoroughly and authoritatively that I can say in complete honesty that no enthusiast can possibly afford to be without it."
