The Plant Lover's Guide to SnowdropsBook - 2014
"Snowdrops (whose Latin name is Galanthus) have a delicate, quiet beauty. Their white bell-shaped petals are striking alone and in a swath, and they are a harbinger of spring. They are hugely popular in the United Kingdom, where fans are known as Galanthophiles, and their popularity in North America continues to grow as they become more readily available. This is the first book to make this group of bulbs accessible to the home gardener. It features profiles of 60 hybrids, species, and cultivars, with information on flowering time, distinguishing features, and ease of cultivation. It addition, it shows how to design with snowdrops, and how to grow and propagate them, also offering tips on where to see snowdrops in public gardens and where to buy them"--Provided by publisher.
