CYCLAMEN by Christopher Grey-Wilson
Cyclamen offer much to the gardener and the horticulturalist. Though a small genus, the species offer great variety of form and colour and is ideal for the specialist gardener. This work looks at the species in its historical contexts and charts the development of the important florist's cyclamen, as well as providing detailed notes on cultivation and propagation. It covers the species in the wild as well as in cultivation, and provides maps showing the distribution of the species and simple keys to aid identification. The guide is accessibly written with a minimum of botanical jargon.
