Gordon Douglas Rowley has had a massive influence in the world of succulents both here in the Uk and worldwide - indeed he was an internationally known celebrity. Gordon led a full and varied life but here a botanical career spanning an incredible 80 years can only be touched on briefly.
Gordon's legacy derives notably from his vast output of publications and to describe him as a prolific author greatly understates his productivity. Particularly significant are the 20 books and booklets he authored which are tabulated.
