Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book, the most complete and expert treatment of wild flower propagation and cultivation to date, offers a sure approach to gardening with native plants while practicing good conservation. Based on ten years of pioneering research at the North Carolina Botanical Garden, Growing and Propagating Wild Flowers features

practical, easy-to-follow methods for raising native plants from seeds, cuttings, and divisions

specific instructions on the propagation and cultivation of plants representing nearly 100 genera of wild flowers, carnivorous plants, and ferns

more than 250 illustrations, including 32 color photographs and 3 sample design plans for a perennial border

For each species treated, the author includes

descriptions of growth habits, flowers, fruits and seeds

outstanding ornamental characteristics, flowering and fruiting times

detailed directions on the collection, cleaning, storage, and germination of seed

information on cultivation and use in the home landscape

notes on related species and their propagation

The native plants cited as examples are found primarily in the eastern United States. The propagation and handling techniques, however, will be useful throughout the temperate areas of the country.
