Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Gardeners throughout the world love these majestic tall flowers, but few are aware of the many colors and forms that are now available with the burst of new cultivars, several of which have been awarded the RHS Award of Garden Merit. Not just blue, but red, pink, violet, yellow, and white forms exist to entice gardeners. Expert authors bring all their expertise and enthusiasm to this book, which is a much-awaited publication on a plant that offers much to the gardener. Introducing both wild and cultivated delphiniums and discussing breeding and the use of the flowers in the garden, the book also covers cultivation and propagation and talks about the pests and diseases that affect delphiniums.

Synopsis:

Most of the 300 or so species are perennials, but there are also nearly 60 annual species in this and the related genus Consolidaand#8212;the true larkspurs. Several are native to the western United States and beloved by wildflower enthusiasts. This long-awaited bookand#8212;the only book on the subject currently in printand#8212;provides a comprehensive survey of delphiniums and larkspurs. As well as describing the numerous species and cultivars, it discusses planting and cultivation considerations, propagation techniques, breeding programs, pests and diseases, and growing delphiniums in containers. Written by leading experts on the subject, and illustrated with wonderful photographs, it will fill a gap in the horticultural literature, providing information and inspiration to gardeners and wildflower lovers.
