The World of Magnolias

by

The World of Magnolias Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An up-to-date encyclopedic reference to all known species, with the most complete listing of cultivars yet published. Since most magnolias are highly ornamental their garden use is a primary focus of the book, though every aspect of magnolias from history to hybridizing is treated.

Synopsis:

Encompassing all the magnolia species, this book documents maganolia history, culture, biology, taxonomy, propagation, breeding, and hybridizers. This is a black-and-white edition.

About the Author

Dorothy J. Callaway was born in Alabama and grew up in Bishop, Georgia. She was exposed to natural history (plant science in particular) at an early age through her parents. She attended the University of Georgia, Athens, Georgia, and received a B.S. in horticulture, followed by an M.S. in botany from the L. H. Bailey Hortorium at Cornell University, Ithaca, New York. Her thesis research involved the taxonomic study of magnolias cultivated in North America. Since then she has written a number of articles on magnolias for major botanical and horticultural journals. Her aims in writing this book are to compile scattered information into a single reference and to introduce others to the fascinating variety of the genus. Dorothy Callaway has served as the official registrar for magnolia cultivars and as a member of the board of trustees of the Magnolia Society, Inc.
