About this book

In this fully updated work, Perry Slocum describes nearly 500 species and cultivars of water gardens, the waterlilies and lotuses. Waterlilies and Lotuses: Species, Cultivars and New Hybrids includes more than 130 of the best new hybrids introduced since the landmark Water Gardening: Water Lilies and Lotuses by Perry Slocum and Peter Robinson was published. All species and the major cultivars, including day – and night – blooming tropical and hardy waterlilies and lotuses, are described along with the author's and hybridizers' comments on the best landscape uses for each plant. Although the genera Nymphaea and Nelumbo receive special emphasis, a chapter is also devoted to the other genera in the waterlily family, Nuphar, Victoria, Euryale, Barclaya, and Ondinea.

Media reviews

"The book is valuable just for its 325 stunning color photographs, the most helpful and informative way to identify and differentiate the many cultivars of waterlilies and lotus introduced over the years. Add this one to your library and give it a well-positioned place on your bookshelf, since you'll consult it often."
