The Plantsman

June 2014

In this issue of The Plantsman we hear about the RHS trial of border Campanula, cultivated Styrax, the true identities of Mahonia acanthifolia and M. napaulensis, breeding unusual Primula variants, conserving succulents in the wild, Hydrangea aspera and its relatives, and the new name Symphyotrichum for Michaelmas daisies. Additionally, the plantsperson biography is on Elizabeth Parker-Jervis.
