The world of bulbs contains countless treasures that are truly outstanding but not well known in cultivation. This book brings these to the attention of gardeners and collectors around the world but is especially relevant for those in warmer climates. It includes many unusual species from South Africa and South America along with representatives of the better-known genera - all chosen because they are considered to be worthy garden subjects.
An introductory section covers the numerous uses of bulbs in landscaping - including naturalising under trees or on banks, in the border, in rockeries, and in containers. Suggestions are made for combining a variety of bulbs with complementary attributes, and for interplanting with annuals, perennials, shrubs, ferns, grasses and ground-covers. Chapters with general information on cultivation, propagation, pests and diseases, and growing bulbs in containers are also included.
The main part of the book, in alphabetical order, comprises descriptions and detailed cultural information on over 120 genera and 800 species and cultivars. Each genus is illustrated with at least one colour photograph, making this an invaluable reference work as well as an inspiration.
