Book News Annotation:

This volume makes what once seemed to be bourgeois little clumps of greenery suddenly look charming and handsome. (Maybe seeing a photo of them alongside a stream in their native habitat helped.) Grenfell provides expert advice on cultivation, propagation, and garden uses of the hosta as well as an A-Z plant directory listing some 400 cultivars and forms. Includes a brief history and botany of the plant, information about hosta collections around the world, and information about exhibiting and showing hostas, with superbly detailed color photos.
