Found this hard copy book in my local library here in New Zealand. What a fabulous book it is. Very comprehensive covering all aspects and the photographs are stunning. Hope the paperback is the same. Highly recommended. Lesley Cowan

If you are into garden photography, especially these flowers, then you will be pleased to see these superb photos by Andrew Lawson. I couldn't find the book locally so again called upon Amazon and again they didn't disappoint both in price and delivery.

This is an excellent dictionary of clematis, with every site catered for. The pictures and narration are very concise and easy to read. If you only have one book on clematis, let it be this one. I bought it as a present and could't part with it!
