Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Scholarly review of history of Lewisias in cultivation, but very readible. In fact, the author has a lovely command of English; he intersperses short surprising poetic passages within the text. The detailed examination of each variety is helpful--only place I've found such information. And the chapter on cultivation--which, with Lewisias is a trick to learn for successful long lived Lewisia plants-- is a gem. One understands why to use his techniques when finished with the chapter.
