Snowdrops (whose Latin name is Galanthus) have a delicate, quiet beauty. Their white, bell-shaped petals are striking alone or in a swath, and they are a harbinger of spring. Hugely popular in the United Kingdom where fans are known as Galanthophiles, their popularity in North America is ever-growing as they become more readily available.
The Plant Lover's Guide to Snowdrops is the first book to make this group of bulbs accessible to the home gardener. It features profiles of 60 hybrids, species, and cultivars, with information on flowering time, distinguishing features, and ease of cultivation. It addition, it shows how to design with, grow, and propagate snowdrops, and offers tips on where to buy snowdrops and see them in public gardens.
This book is part of the Plant Lover's Guide series on important ornamental plant groups. Written for plant-driven gardeners by recognized experts in the field, the guides offer a great education in ornamental gardening and are abundantly illustrated with inspiring photography of both the plants and gardens that feature them.
