About this book

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.

Providing even the most novice gardening enthusiast with a plethora of information for each of the many featured Buddleja species, Stuart draws upon his more than fourteen years of experience with the plants to share his invaluable wisdom. Bookwatch 20060601 The experienced author has written the first comprehensive book on this genus ... highly recommended. -- L. G. Kavaljian Choice 20060901
