Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Perhaps the most uncommon hue in the plant kingdom, the color blue strikes a distinctive note in any garden. In this fascinating book, now available in paperback, Robert Geneve provides a wide selection of blue flowers that will help readers expand the range of colors in their gardening palettes-from powder blue and turquoise to navy and violet. A well-traveled garden visitor and gifted photographer, the author has included more than 150 stunning photos of blue flowers from gardens around the world. A Book of Blue Flowers is an ideal handbook for gardeners of all skill levels and in any climate.

Book News Annotation:

Geneve (horticulture, U. of Kentucky, Lexington) looks at 150 or more genera of plants, and hundreds of species and cultivars, whose flowers range from aquamarine to violet blue. He begins with a wide-ranging discussion of such issues as the technical aspects of the color blue and the use of blue in the garden, followed by an A-to-Z description of blue-flowering plants and their cultivation.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
