The Plant Lover's Guide to Dahlias


The Plant Lover's Guide to Dahlias Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Dahlias are the showgirls of the garden. Their colorful blooms, from purple, pink, and white to yellow, orange, and red, come in a huge variety of sizes and shapes. They are also a favorite cut flower, adding bright cheer and strong architecture to an arrangement.

The Plant Lover's Guide to Dahlias is packed with everything you need to know to grow these fantastic flowers. The book includes tips on using dahlias in garden design, growth and propagation information, and lists of where to buy the plants and where to view them in public gardens. The bulk of the book is devoted to profiles for over 200 varieties, organized by color, with information on type, height, and spread. Gorgeous color photographs bring the plants to life.

This book is part of the Plant Lover's Guide series on important ornamental plant groups. Written for plant-driven gardeners by recognized experts in the field, the guides offer a great education in ornamental gardening and are abundantly illustrated with inspiring photography of both the plants and gardens that feature them.
