  My new vine book (celatocaulis & dubia)
From: Jack Honeycutt jhoneycutt at uswest.net> on 2000.06.13 at 02:49:59(4751)
I just picked up "The New Royal Horticulture Society Directory, Manual of
Climbers and Wall Plants" by Burras (Timber Press, 1994, about $44 with
shipping from Amazon).

Lovely B&W line drawings, a list of 'Names no longer in Use', 'Index of
popular names', and a nice bibliography. About 265 pages. Much of the
information is taken from the 1992 massive work "The New RHS Directory of
Gardening" (who can afford that??!!)

Burras's book has a listing for Monstera (10 species described, plus about
another 10 older names or, 'also know as' references), and Rhaphidophora (2
species described). No drawings of either.

The keys pale in compression to Peter Boyce's 'juvenile monsteroids' post
earlier today (thank you Peter for that fine post; it is going in my
permanent file).
