Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Early in the 20th century, Alice Harding wrote two short books on peonies that remain valuable to this day. This new edition combines the most important elements of the books with extensive supplements and superb color photographs by the noted peony grower Roy G. Klehm.

Book News Annotation:

Harding's two books, written in 1917 and 1923, remain the standard account of the peony, based on her testing and evaluating, propagation, and collection of both herbaceous and tree varieties in New Jersey. Here her information, focusing on soil preparation and disease control, along with her distinctive writing style, are supported by a modern forward and appendices of current information. Well illustrated with color plates. Acidic paper.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
