Camellias: A Practical Gardening Guide (Practical Gardening Guides)

Camellias: A Practical Gardening Guide (Practical Gardening Guides) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For decades, large swathes of the United States and Europe believed camellias to be altogther too tender for garden use, their exquisite blooms in pure colors giving the impression that they were too rarified and delicate to tangle with. Today, few gardens are without their share of camellias.

This encyclopedia is a comprehensive, one-stop reference for camellia enthusiasts at all levels. It provides information on how to grow and care for camellias as well as detailed descriptions of a handpicked selection of over 600 garden-worthy species and cultivars. The highly informed and truly international plant selection includes classic favorites as well as the latest introductions from around the world. Significant coverage is given to cold-hardy cultivars and there are chapters devoted to establishing camellias in the garden and growing them successfully in containers.

Over 800 enticing images will entice all gardeners to accommodate more of these exquisite plants.

Book News Annotation:

The flowers of the plant genus Camellia tend to bloom in the late winter and early spring. Writing for the amateur gardener, the authors provide advice on the selection, growth, and care of these plants. Illustrated chapters discuss history and nomenclature, camellias in open ground and in containers, landscaping, diseases and pests, and propagation. Also included is an annotated list of species and cultivars, as well as lists of camellia societies and other resources. This is a revised edition of a 1992 work.
