Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This is a book for adventurous gardeners with an appreciation for temperate orchid species and native wildflowers. A surprising number of terrestrial orchids are hardy, some able to withstand temperatures down to minus 50°F or minus 45.5°C. Though they have a reputation for being challenging to cultivate, in truth, most hardy orchids are no more so than a rose. This is great news for gardeners, who will enjoy filling their gardens with their enchanting fragrances, vibrant color displays, and long-lived blooms. At the center of the book is a catalog of 103 hardy and half-hardy orchids. In addition to detailing the techniques of cultivation and propagation, the book covers conservation and includes lists of suppliers and organizations offering nursery-propagated plants — an especially critical issue for species in danger of extinction.

Synopsis:

Grown for their fragrance, brilliant color, and longevity, hardy orchids have a reputation for being difficult to cultivate. The author dismantles this myth and teaches readers how anyone can grow these plants with just a few simple techniques. 103 hardy and half-hardy orchids are featured along with cultivation, propagation, and conservation information.
