Encyclopedia of Hydrangeas

Encyclopedia of Hydrangeas Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Famed for their durability, beauty, and diversity, hydrangeas are enjoying a renaissance in today's gardens. These classic garden shrubs provide bold color — from pink to purple, blue to white — in midsummer to midautumn, when few other plants are in bloom. Many hundreds of dramatic species, hybrids, and horticultural selections are available to the enthusiast to fill every possible niche in the garden. For the first time, a thorough encyclopedia shows in full color the range of flowering treasures available. With complete information on cultivation, propagation, and pests and diseases, The Encyclopedia of Hydrangeas promises to help every discerning gardener ensure planting success. Lavishly illustrated with approximately 800 photographs, the concise descriptions present more than 1000 hydrangea species, subspecies, varieties, and cultivars. All types of hydrangeas are included, from blousy mopheads to delicate lacecaps, from oakleafs to climbers. This incredible resource provides gardeners with the tools needed to discover the many true gems in this lovely group of plants.

Book News Annotation:

Coauthors of Maples of the World (1999), a father and son who own a century-old Dutch nursery, showcase the diversity of these back-in-vogue shrubs that have the ability to change color per soil amendments. Entries describing some 1000 species include photos, flower color (in neutral conditions), breeder, parentage, and candid evaluations of growth habit (e.g., one cultivar is described as being "a weak and untidy shrub"). Appendices offer data on genetic analysis for differentiating species, and a list of plants that are mis- identified as Hydrangea, no longer in cultivation, or for which there is little information available in English.
