Twenty-five species of the genus Paeonia are documented in these pages, including 40 subspecies and varieties. Also included herein is the closely related genus Glaucidium. With only two species, it will be of intense interest to peony fanciers. Waddick provides valuable information on growing peony species, with a full account of soil considerations, hardiness, propagation, and diseases and pests. The text is graced with stunning botanical paintings.

About the Author

Josef J. Halda was a botanist at the Botanical Institute of the Czechoslovak Academy of Sciences prior to starting his renowned seed-collecting business. Traveling throughout Europe and Asia, he has collected mostly alpine-plant seeds for sale to gardeners throughout the world. He has become an expert on several plant genera of horticultural importance, including Primula, Daphne, Gentiana, and Paeonia, writing monographs on each one. His wife, Jarmila Haldová, an accomplished illustrator of children's books, makes his plants accessible with her distinctively beautiful, botanically accurate drawings.
