Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“A beautifully written book.”—The Garden Journal

“A few garden writers offer prose that goes beyond how to spade and spray to convey the experience and pleasures of gardening. The late Elizabeth Lawrence was such a writer.”—Southern Living

“First published in 1957 and out-of-print for many years, this is a delightfully written and enormously informative introduction to the fascinating variety of little bulbs available to the gardener. The author discusses a wide variety of plants, both familiar and little-known, including crocuses, species daffodils, hardy cyclamen and lily-family members such as Brodiaea, Bessera, and Calochortus.”—American Horticulturist

Synopsis:

This book focused on two things. First, there were the little bulbs themselves-not only common things like aconites and crocuses and the tinier sorts of daffodils, but also rarities like Clinopodium georgianum and Habranthus texanus-all plants which she grew in her garden, first in Raleigh and then in Charlotte. Second, and of equal importance, there were the friends who shared her passion of gardening.
