Booklist Review

Here is a definitive guide to the care and cultivation of a majestic flower that blooms in a multitude of vivid colors and shades. Edwards is vice-president of Britain's Delphinium Society, and his book puts special emphasis on species and cultivars recognized by the Royal Horticultural Society for their outstanding beauty. Just how many of these are available in the U.S. is not completely spelled out, but at least the list of species includes their origin (consequently, those from the U.S. can be determined that way). In addition to detailed information on growing delphiniums, there are chapters on exhibiting, arranging, and drying. Sixteen pages of color photographs and many line drawings add to the book's appeal. Index. --George Cohen
