For those tired of high-maintenance and short-lived plants, Chris Wiesinger, this book shares his knowledge of versatile, sustainable, and low-maintenance bulbs. The book introduces the best of the bulb world, addressing common questions and explaining the characteristics, history and ways to use each bulb, whether in the landscape or the home. Chris teams with landscape designer and award-winning author Cherie Foster Colburn to offer an innovative look at old-fashioned flower bulbs. While most garden guides simply tell the culture of the plant, this book also tells the culture of the people who grew the plant, unearthing each bulb's past and those who loved it. Gorgeous botanical illustrations and vivid photographs by South African artists Loela Barry and Johan Kritzinger add rich flavour to featured bulbs found flowering with abandon in historic gardens, homes, and cemeteries, transporting readers on their own bulb hunt. With undeniable Southern charm, Wiesinger describes the adventures he encounters while collecting these old favourites, dubbed the "comfort food" of the plant world.
