The Gardener's Guide to Growing Peonies is a comprehensive and wide-ranging study of a large genus with a complex classification, and the first major review of the peony since 1946. Specialists will derive much valuable botanical information while practical gardeners will find ideas for using peonies in rockeries, herbaceous borders and woodland gardens as well as for autumn colour and as feature plants. All gardeners will profit from the detailed descriptions of over 600 species and cultivars. The book features a wealth of practical advice on cultivation, pest and disease control, and garden uses and contains the latest research into the plant's history, distribution and developments in hybridizing.
