Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

There is no harbinger of spring like a field or garden filled with bright yellow daffodils. But the world of the daffodil is much more than just its place in the march of the seasons. It's a plant whose history starts with the tombs of the Pharaohs and leads to the current explosion of varieties from plant breeders seeking new colors, fragrances, and forms.

Daffodil reveals a global plant infatuation that has led to more than 25,000 cultivars available in nearly every shade of yellow (and now pink, orange, and white). Noel Kingsbury tells the tale through an engaging narrative history and plant portraits that highlight more than 200 varieties. Jo Whitworth's revealing photography shows a side of the daffodil rarely seen. Plant lovers will relish the stories and gardeners will cherish the cultivation notes, plant descriptions, and recommendations.

About the Author

Noel Kingsbury, well known as a designer, commentator, and writer on plants, gardens, landscape and environment has played a major role in popularizing a more naturalistic and sustainable planting style since the mid 1990s. His doctorate from the University of Sheffield applied plant ecology science to the selection and management of ornamental perennials and he continues to engage in active research.
