Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The sheer number of choices among Hydrangea species, hybrids, and cultivated varieties can be overwhelming even for the most advanced of gardeners. How to choose from among the hundreds of mopheads, climbers, lacecaps, and oakleafs, to name just a few? And how to care for hydrangeas in American gardens, when nearly all the books offering advice about them come from England and Europe? Respected plantsman Michael A. Dirr comes to the rescue in this refreshingly forthright and practical guide to these distinctive shrubs and climbers.

Review:

"[A] comprehensive study....Dirr clearly adores hydrangeas, but he doesn't gloss over their occasional problems....Gardeners will find useful advice about which varieties perform best in their part of the United States." Library Journal

Review:

"Dirr's reigning expertise in the realm of trees and shrubs comes through once again." Alice Joyce, Booklist

Book News Annotation:

To fill a perceived gap in garden references, a horticulturalist working in hydrangea breeding at the University of Georgia describes the primary species and cultivars of this popular shrub grown in North America. He discusses their cultivation needs, uses, and prospects for further exciting varieties, such as the new repeat bloomers. The book includes lists of specialty associations, gardens, and nurseries.
