Iris (Affordable Series Of Books For Gardeners)

Named for the Greek goddess of the rainbow, the iris has been called the "poor man's orchid" because it is exotic yet low maintenance, inexpensive and can be grown in the back garden. The seductive beauty of this flamboyant perennial has made the iris second in popularity in the US and Great Britain only to the rose. This illustrated guide tells beginning and experienced gardeners all they need to know to cultivate many different varieties - but focuses mainly on the myriad of bearded, beardless and bulbous irises (including rebloomers).

This book was purchased in memory of a man whose daughter said he enjoyed iris. I reviewed several books on iris, keeping in mind that I had a limited budget.. For the price, this little book had a lot of information on various species of iris. The color photos are great, and I think it's a wonderful addition to our group's library.

This has lots of good information for the iris grower. Very helpful. Book was in excellent condition.

Good information on irises

Excellent Reference book
