Garden Bulbs for the South

Garden Bulbs for the South Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

There are hundreds of choice bulbs that revel in southern warmth and humidity, and Scott Ogden profiles the best of them in this fascinating, comprehensive volume. In a series of chapters that takes us through the gardening year, Ogden introduces the plants that help to give southern gardens their distinct regional flavor, many with charmingly descriptive names: rain lilies, oxblood lilies, jonquils, crinums, and scores of others. Weaving in bits of history and lore, Ogden details each plant's appearance and growing requirements. Originally published to widespread acclaim in 1994, Garden Bulbs for the South has been updated and significantly expanded in this edition to include information on new varieties as well as nearly one hundred new photographs.

Book News Annotation:

An Austin, Texas-based horticulturist/landscape designer/garden writer not only reassures Southerners that they can grow bulbs associated with colder climates, but also points out that warm- weather bulbs are part of a regional garden legacy. In this update of the 1993 edition, Ogden describes rain lilies (Zephyranthus cultivars), personal favorites; other flowering bulbs by season; and in a new chapter, their use even in gardens with "gumbo" soil. The guide includes color photos (some from the author's garden shown with companion plants), and US and international resources. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
