The Genus Erythronium

Erythronium, a genus of 29 species of bulbous perennials, are among of the most striking spring-flowering woodland plants with their slender pendent flowers and mottled arum-like leaves. Originating in North America, Europe and Japan, many cultivars are relatively easy to grow and they are becoming more popular as garden plants. This, the first dedicated monograph on Erythronium, is an authoritative book for gardeners, growers and breeders and a major academic work that gathers together the latest research. The chapter on taxonomy gives a detailed account for each species (25 native to North America). A supplementary chapter presents accounts of the naturally occurring hybrids and artificial hybrids. There is also a chapter on cultivation.
