Description

Tells the story of the pelargonium, one of the most popular plants in Britain, Europe, America and Australia. This book reveals the tales of those who have been involved in finding, classifying, collecting and breeding the plants. It explodes the myth that all modern versions of the plant are descended from the oldest known variety.

Texte du rabat

Quick and reliable to grow for summer colour, and well marketed, most gardeners will have at least one pelargonium in their garden or conservatory, without realising either the number or variety of species available, nor the plant's extraordinary history.
