Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Introductory chapters deal with the plant's long history, natural distribution, and cultivation (planting, feeding, mulching, pruning, pests and diseases, and propagation). The bulk of the text is a descriptive list of 60 cultivars, offering information on each plant's height, flowering time, and flower and leaf, all in meticulous detail. Each listing has a color photograph and an illustration of leaves and sepals. Concluding is a glossary and a list of public gardens worldwide that feature hydrangeas. George Cohen --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Review

First-rate ... definitive and irresistible tribute to one of America's favorite shrubs. Publishers Weekly 20040531 Valuable. -- Verlyn Klinkenborg New York Times 20040606 The photographs in superb color of species and cultivars are well-taken, and make it easier to understand the difference, often subtle, of the multitude of cultivars available. -- John E. Bryan Gardening Newsletter 20050309 The book is full of great photographs and discusses propagation, hydrangeas as potted plants, drying the flowers, and lists a full description of the cultivars and species. -- Linda Cobb Spartanburg Herald-Journal 20050315

66 of 66 people found the following review helpful By Phillip Oliver VINE VOICE on June 13, 2000
Format: Hardcover
This is the most comprehensive source of information on hydrangeas that I have ever seen. There is detailed advice on every aspect of growing hydrangeas, including soil preparation, watering, and the effects of color in hydrangeas due to soil content. Generous illustrations show the different types of leaves on the various types of hydrangeas. The most valuable part of the book is a section devoting a full page to specific varieties and shows a photo, characteristics in chart format and a detailed narrative description. This book is well worth the price!

Format: Hardcover
This is the best book on hydrangeas in print today. Only one other (Hydrangeas, by Millet) even comes close. Because this book is so well organized, it is extemely easy to learning all about hydrangeas - their botanical structure, the different species and how they grow. One can immediately see the differences between hydrangeas - how large they will get, how large their blooms will be, what colors they might become, and the shape of the bloom. The illustrations are beautiful and leave one dreaming of a garden full of these beauties.

I like this book, but don't love it. I would have liked to have more information on an extended variety of Hydrangeas. However, not knowing the species names maybe I misunderstood. It is useful in how to care for, plant, and choose the right plant. I would recommend it for a Hydrangea lover.

Product is taking longer than expected to be delivered to El Salvador, where I lived.. Can't talk about it yet.
