About this book

In this comprehensive, up-to-date volume, bulb expert Janis Ruksans surveys all the known species in this remarkable genus, including those that have been discovered since the appearance of Brian Mathew's 1982 monograph. He also discusses their use in the garden, their botanical characteristics, and classification - all in nonspecialist language so that even readers without a botanical background can profit by his knowledge and broad experience.
