Lilies PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Lilies free pdf The sheer diversity of the genus Lilium is astonishing. Lilies have been immortalized in art, revered as religious symbols and sought after by plant hunters. The revolution in lilies for gardeners started only about fifty years ago, when hybrids were created that surpassed in health and beauty any of the lilies that had come before. The result has been a succession of garden plants that has caught the imagination of gardeners across Europe, Asia and North America. This book is for gardeners who love lilies and want to know more about how to look after them and what choices are available. It aims to familiarize readers with the often little-known species and clarify the differences between various divisions in the hybrids. It also gives a brief history of how far lilies have come since the days when the Egyptian Pharaohs decreed that carvings of the Madonna lily should decorate their tombs. As with most popular flowers, new lily hybrids are constantly appearing and suppliers can provide the most up-to-date information on which cultivars are available in any given season.
