Tulips: Species and Hybrids for the Gardener
The infinite charms of species tulips have long been appreciated by specialists and collectors. This well illustrated monograph presents a detailed description of the hillsides, gorges and steppes of Europe, the Middle East and Central Asia that are home to species tulips and provide clues to their cultivation needs in the garden. Chapters on the history of tulips, botany and taxonomy are followed by comprehensive species accounts and a brief look at hybridisation.
The author has worked at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew for 17 years, and is currently Collections Manager responsible for alpines, bulbs and herbaceous perennials.
