|A new Rhapis book - the first for 25 years !
"New illustrated guide to Rhapis Palms of Japan"
|Dear all Rhapis palm lovers,
A new book about Rhapis palms has just been published.
It is 25 years since the last one was published.
There are only 3000 copies in all. They aren't sold at any book stores. The book contains many excellent colour plates of various Rhapis palms which
have been registered in the last 25 years, but also includes many plates of traditional and unregistered ones.The book is written in Japanese, but the name of each
variety is written in both Japanese and English.
The book was written by Mr. Tamura, a member of Japan
Rhapis Palm Society. I also helped him write the book and
there are some pictures of my rhapis palms in it.
(Especially, most of rare palms are mine.)
It took one and a half years to complete the book.
The book contains huge quantities of information throughout
and costs £20.00 including postage.

|A "must have" book for all Rhapis collectors - Keith Andrew|
|(the original!) The Miniature Palms of Japan Cultivating Kannonchiku and Shurochiku. By Yoshihiro Okita and J . Leyland Hollenberg|
|First Published in 1981. Now out of print. It contains everything you need to know about growing and propagating Rhapis palms.
I would go as far to say that this book was partly responsible for my obsession with Rhapis palms. Anybody at all interested in growing Rhapis should have this book.
