Best known for their intense blue flowers and key role in traditional perennial borders, delphiniums are classic garden plants. Most of the 300 or so species are perennials, but there are also nearly 60 annual species in this and the related genus Consolida - the true larkspurs. Wild species range from tiny alpines with a bushy growth habit to relative giants, with flowers in shades of blue and violet, white, yellow, and scarlet. Several are native to the western United States and beloved by wildflower enthusiasts. Most familiar to gardeners are the myriad named Delphinium cultivars, bred not only for the color, form and size of their flowers but also for the height, shape, and disease-resistance of the plants. This long awaited book - the only book on the subject currently in print - provides a comprehensive survey of delphiniums and larkspurs. As well as describing the numerous species and cultivars, it discusses planting and cultivation considerations, propagation techniques, breeding programs, pests and diseases, and growing delphiniums in containers. Written by leading experts on the subject and illustrated with wonderful photographs, it will fill a gap in the horticultural literature, providing information and inspiration to gardeners and wildflower lovers.
