RHS horticultural monographs are authoritative guides to the identification, botany and cultivation of garden plants
We are publishing a new series of monographs - our first for more than 50 years. They mark a new era of RHS scientific publishing for all those who love cultivated plants. Although these monographs will include comprehensive information about species, their strength will lie in their extensive, illustrated coverage of cultivars - many of which can be grown in private gardens.
Through these scientific works we hope to encourage the enjoyment and use of a wider range of cultivated plants in gardens and landscapes. Furthermore, we hope to improve plant identification and promote plant conservation, cultivation, use, selection and plant breeding.
These monographs will, over time, strengthen the global knowledge bank on gardening and garden plants, and act as a confirmation of the importance of the RHS as an international centre of excellence of horticultural taxonomy.
