Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Al Rogers has been growing peonies since childhood, and this book represents more than 60 years' experience. Peonies are treasured by gardeners for their longevity, lush foliage, rich fragrance, and landscape uses. Captured within these pages are not only the flavor, charm, and history of the peony and its hybridizers but also expert information about the genus Paeonia and its many cultivars. The species are discussed, and from the thousand-odd listed cultivars of both tree and herbaceous peonies, Rogers singles out the truly superior for recommendation, along with some introductions that show great promise. Enthusiastic amateurs and professionals alike will be thrilled with the complete and detailed information supplied in Peonies — an important book for any gardener's library.

Book News Annotation:

Having acquired his first peony in 1929 at age eight, nursery owner Rogers is well qualified to present this detailed guide to peony history, cultivation, and cultivars. The audience for this book is wide, ranging from novice gardeners to commercial growers. A section of 143 color photos and a chapter on recommended cultivars will guide the unitiated. More experienced peony-lovers will find information about propagation, getting started commercially, and peonies in cultivation worldwide, as well as a listing of nursery sources, a contributed essay on landscaping with peonies, and a select list of references and resources.
