Editorial Reviews

Fairhope Courier
I recommend Scott Ogden's Garden Bulbs for the South.
— John Carpenter
George Cohen
Ogden's book concerns what he calls "the historic, neglected, and little-known" warm-climate bulbs that grow well in the South. There are 133 genera listed in the appendix, with notes on their species, origins, and culture. Ogden opens with a chapter on rain lilies and continues with chapters on bulbs that bloom in the fall (Guernsey and oxblood lilies, lycoris, cyclamens, alliums, etc.), on winter blooms (paper-whites, Roman hyacinths, blue starflowers, etc.), on jonquils and daffodils, on bulbs that bloom in the spring (trout lilies, tulips, grape hyacinths, etc.), on irises, gladiolus, and shellflowers, on crinums and spider lilies, on so-called summer glories, and on cannas, arums, and gingers. The book is a treasure, packed with information and 200 color photographs.
