His Book with Mary Toomey An Illustrated Encyclopaedia of Clematis is the first picture encyclopaedia on the genus to encompass the garden-worthy species and hybrids.
This book is separated into two sections: the first is devoted to the care and cultivation of clematis, while the second provides an A–Z directory of more than 550 plants, from the acclaimed large-flowered forms to the less-familiar shrubby, sub shrubby, and herbaceous forms that are beginning to be available. Using everyday language, the authors provide plant descriptions that include information on synonyms, origin, plant habit and height, flowers, pruning group, flowering period, cultural requirements, recommended uses in the garden, and hardiness zones. The text is accompanied by more than 650 magnificent colour photos, making this encyclopaedia an indispensable reference and guide.
