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.
