Kingsbury explains the many different classifications of this flowering bulb, then relates its history, from burial in the tombs of the Pharaohs to the present day, emphasising the flower's place as an important symbol of annual renewal before describing, with relish, a number of idiosyncratic, even obsessive, growers and breeders.
Noel Kingsbury is known internationally as a garden writer, researcher, lecturer and designer of naturalistic and sustainable planting for gardens and public spaces.
