A detailed account of a genus of plants grown on both sides of the Atlantic for their beautiful and varied foliage, particularly now that a prolific number of good cultivars are available. In the introduction the author describes the geographical distribution of Hostas, their history and botanical structure. Two major reference sections follow - firstly the species are covered, with botanical descriptions; secondly an account of cultivars, clones and spores is given. After full guidance on Hosta cultivation there are chapters devoted specifically to Hostas in landscape gardening, amateur gardening, flower arrangement and container growing.Book Description:
Grenfell traces the introduction of hostas from Japan through Macao to Europe two hundred years ago, detailing the work of nineteenth-and twentieth-century botanists on the genus. There are full and detailed descriptions of the species and a listing of more than 150 recommended cultivars, some of which may be better known among English and Continental growers than in the United States. In addition to the color photographs, there are 27 botanical drawings by Jenny Brasier, who has won three Gold Medals from the Royal Horticultural Society for her illustrations.
