Product description

From Booklist

Blessed as it is with a relatively carefree nature, extensive climate range, and dazzling color spectrum, the daylily is deservedly popular with amateur and professional gardeners alike; so much so that some 1,600 new daylilies are introduced into the marketplace annually and in excess of 50,000 registered cultivars are widely available. Such a profusion of daylilies is bound to breed confusion. Enter this up-to-date and comprehensive guidebook aimed at demystifying the current state of one of horticulture's most prolific, varied, and adaptable members. Covering a broad range of topics, from the history of the species to a first look at as-yet-unnamed new introductions, the manual also offers an inclusive directory of those daylilies generally considered most desirable by today's gardeners. Contributing authors, each an expert in a specific aspect of daylily gardening, discuss topics such as cultivation, landscape design, and the increasingly popular field of hybridization. More than 200 color photographs and illustrations aid in making this a must-have reference for the daylily devotee. Carol Haggas
