The Smaller Bulbs Summary


The Smaller Bulbs by Brian Mathew

This is an A-Z format book which deals with genera and species of smaller bulbs. Detailed information is supplied on habitat and distribution, as well as a brief taxonomic description of the distinguishing features of each plant. Cultivation notes are given in the introduction to each genus - or under particular species which require specialized treatment. The author has also kept in mind the differing needs of growers in diverse climates or hemispheres. The book covers such popular hardy bulbs as tulipa, corydalis, crocus and fritillaria and the author has incorporated changes in nomenclature that have affected these bulbs. A list of bulb suppliers is included, as well as a list of further reading and diagrammatic keys to the more complex genera. Brian Mathew is also the author of "The Crocus", "The Iris" and "The Bulbous Plants of Turkey" (with Turhan Baytop).
