Though the descriptions are in Japanese, the book comes with an English translation by Shigeo Matsumoto. The cultivars are grouped by flower color or other characteristics such as leaf mutants or foliar variegation. Many newer varieties are listed, such as the �Tama no ura� seedlings on the cover. A great reference to see all the different Camellia possibilities. The English translation has the name, detailed description, hybridizer and date of introduction. 360 pages. Published in 2010. Shipping for these two books is $10.
