Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With their abundance of flower, handsome foliage, robust constitution, and frequently stunning fruits, viburnums are among the most beautiful and versatile hardy shrubs available to gardeners. Yet despite these outstanding qualities, there has never been an entire volume devoted to them—until now. In this definitive, comprehensive, generously illustarted guide, internationally renowned woody plant expert Michael Dirr provides a wealth of information about every species and cultivar worthy of horticultural consideration. Never one to pull punches, Dirr bestows praise on viburnums that deserve it and is frank in his evaluation of other plants' occasional shortcomings. These finely judged appraisals make it easy for the gardener or designer to choose the right plant for the right situation.

Whether you're a home gardener in search of a four-season shrub; a nursery professional seeking woody plants with proven appeal; or a designer looking for specimens that are both functional and guaranteed to impress clients, Viburnums will acquaint you with a group of plants capable of meeting all these requirements.

Michael Dirr has said that a garden without viburnums is like a life without the pleasures of music and art. After reading just a few pages of this unparalleled work, you're sure to agree.

Book News Annotation:

The virtues of this shrub, its history, cultivation, and descriptions and discussion of many species and cultivars are presented in this thoughtfully produced and beautifully illustrated volume. The descriptions are based on Dirr's personal observation of the plant, with notes on performance in various climates. Excellent color photos are provided for each plant described. Dirr is a leading American horticulturist who teaches at the U. of Georgia and has many publications to his name. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Rosemarie Adams, June 8, 2008 (view all comments by Rosemarie Adams)
Beautifully illustrated book, crammed with information about one of the most beautiful fragrant shrubs around, most of which are winter hardy in most parts of the country. Not just a reference book, but a book to sit and read.
