In this comprehensive, up-to-date volume, bulb expert Janis RukA'ans surveys all the known species in this remarkable genus, including those that have been discovered since the appearance of Brian Mathew's 1982 monograph. He also discusses their use in the garden, their botanical characteristics, and classification - all in nonspecialist language so that even readers without a botanical background can profit by his knowledge and broad experience.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Opened my eyes to the richness of the genus. [Ruk ns] wrote Crocuses in language that can be understood by the everyday gardener. Horticulture

This is the kind of gardening book that makes my garden-geeky heart beat faster. Cold Climate Gardening

This is a botanically-minded gardener s view of crocuses. . . . J nis has the advantage over all his predecessors of having seen the vast majority of the plants he describes in the wild. This gives him a unique perspective into variation within the genus, and within species. John Grimshaw s Garden Diary
