Lilacs: a gardener's encyclopedia

By Fiala, John L.

Publishing Date: 2008

Classification: R

Call Number: R 635.9338 FIA

"First published in 1988 by American hybridizer Reverend John Fiala, the first edition of this reference quickly became known worldwide as the lilac loves' bible. The latest revision combines Fiala's passion for lilacs with the expertise of Canadian plantsman Freek Vrugtman, the International Lilac Registrar." "The new enlarged book provides up-to-date information on the 21 known lilac species and 10 natural hybrids, as well as hundreds of the 2000 named cultivars. Five hundred color photos have been added, including some which show the newest introductions from Russia and neighboring states. The text addresses practical concerns of selecting, growing, propagating, and using lilacs in the landscape, alone or with companion plants. It also provides details of the history, origin, and discovery of the species and of the people behind the development of the cultivars. A new chapter on lilacs in art and design, an updated list of places where lilacs can be viewed and celebrated, and an extensive bibliography complete this rich resource."--Jacket.
