Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

The rare beauty of trilliums has made these woodland flowers among the most coveted specimens a dedicated gardener can grow--if and when one is lucky enough to locate nursery-propagated plants or patient enough to attempt growing them from seed. This highly readable guide presents a trove of information, complete with lovely photos, line drawings, and serviceable descriptions to help in identifying all known species. Having both grown trilliums for years and undertaken extensive study of plants in their native habitats, the authors know their subject intimately. Their enthusiasm and expertise are admirably conveyed here with invaluable counsel on plant habit in a garden setting. All trillium, from the most common types to those species acknowledged to be endangered, are discussed in considerable depth regarding areas of plant distribution and general habitat. Alice Joyce --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Format: Hardcover
The book has three main sections. The first section is an introduction which contains 6 pages about Trillium history, native geography, and plant relatives. 25 pages about the anatomy, biology, and ecology of Trillium. 13 pages on horticulture and propagation. 7 pages on conservation and bioethics.
The second section addresses Trillium taxonomy. It contains 6 pages on taxonomy, 13 pages on a taxonomic key to species, and 160 pages describing 38 species of Trilliums. Each species is fully described by common name, scientific name, key anatomy characteristic, flowering season, habitat, geographic distribution (including a map of distribution), varieties and forms.
The third section contains extra species information, glossary, and index. There are 22 pages about 5 Asiatic species, 8 page Glossary, 6 page Bibliography, and a 5 page Index by species.
In addition, there are 78 full color photographs. Photography is crisp and clear. Each species is presented in one or more large images.
This book is a classic! The writing is genius! It is informative, timely, and absolutely fascinating. Every detail you could imagine is revealed about this interesting collecting of plants. Whether your interest is as a botanist, horticulturalist, conservationist, or perennial gardener, you will find the information to be complete and exceptionally well written.
The book is a monograph on Trillium. It is the single key source of information on this genus. It is such a great blend of botany, horticulture, and inspired writing, that all other genus specific books will have to be measured against this work. I really loved the way the authors brought together all these diverse facts into one very readable text.
If you love Trillium and want to learn more about this beautiful plant - buy this book!

After almost half a century of exploration, study, and propagation, Fred and Roberta Case have produced a masterpiece. "Trilliums" offers a thouough discussion of the spring wildflowers variously known as 'wake-robin', 'sweet Beth' and 'Trinity Lily'. The book isn't perfect-the range maps look slightly tacky and may be inaccurate in a few cases-but the text is excellent and the color photographs are outstanding. Professionals and amateurs will find this book very satisfying.

This is the best book written on Trillium. It is not only a thorough and comprehensive book on the genus but it is a beautiful book printed on fine quality paper and filled with many beautiful colored pictures of trillium. This is the bible for any trillium lover and make a perfect gift for one too.

Excellent resource. Thorough and scientific but also understandable. A useful dictionary of terms included to 'translate' the science for the lay person. Also, even 20 years out, the photos are stunning. Who knew the variety of trilliums out there!?

This book covers all known species of Trilliums. For those like myself who love these beautiful flowers this book has very complete up to date information on all aspects of the subject.. It is well illustrated. As far as I know there is no other book quite like it.

The is an outstanding work, easily the best and most complete work on the Genus. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is the maps, which I feel are a bit shabby and poorly done given the otherwise excellent nature of the rest of the work. The maps are acurate, but I feel any 16 yearold could have made better (crisper) maps in photoshop. But that doesn't really detract from the rest of the book, which is excellent. The pictures are beautiful and the authors have a masterful grasp and understanding of this beguiling yet challenging Genus. The descriptions are accurate and easy to follow.
