5.0 out of 5 stars The first monograph on snowdrops for almost half a century., 23 Feb 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: The Genus Galanthus: A "Botanical Magazine" Monograph (Hardcover)
This is the first monograph on snowdrops for almost half a century, and a must for all galanthophiles. Whilst this book will satisfy the most rigourous requirements of the botanist, with its account of the taxonomy, morphology, anatomy, cytology, pollination, ecology, conservation and cultivation of the genus galanthus, there is much for the amateur galanthophile also, with splendid colour painting of each species by Christabel King, as well as colour pholtographs of snowdrops in habitat and cultivation. February is the key month for snowdrop fever, and choice varieties can change hands for £20 to £30 per bulb. Whilst this is nowhere near the scale of the tulipomania which gripped the Netherlands some centuries ago, it is an indication of the appeal of this charming plant which brightens up our winter gardens.
