Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This authoritative book provides the first comprehensive coverage of the popular and varied genus Buddleja. Buddlejas are wonderful garden plants whose tolerance of drought, many soil conditions, and common pests ensures them a place in every garden. Highly attractive to butterflies, moths, and other insects, the flowers of buddlejas come in a huge range of shapes and colors. This book provides valuable clarification of the confusion over the naming of Buddleja species and hybrids, details the diversity of the genus, and introduces gardeners to the spectacular quality of the flowers. It is ideal for collectors and enthusiasts, as well as wildlife and natural-style gardeners.

He now works as an independent horticultural consultant. He has judged shows for the Royal Horticultural Society and is a committee member and council member of the National Council for the Conservation of Plants and Gardens.
