Abstract:

For those tired of high-maintenance and short-lived plants, Chris Wiesinger, "The Bulb Hunter" shares his knowledge of versatile, sustainable, and low-maintenance bulbs. HEIRLOOM BULBS FOR TODAY introduces the best of the bulb world, addressing common questions and explaining the characteristics, history and ways to use each bulb, whether in the landscape or the home. Chris teams with landscape designer and award winning author Cherie Foster Colburn (OUR SHADOW GARDEN) to offer an innovative look at old-fashioned flower bulbs. While most garden guides simply tell the culture of the plant, HEIRLOOM BULBS FOR TODAY also tells the culture of the people who grew the plant, unearthing each bulb's past and those who loved it. Gorgeous botanical illustrations and vivid photographs by South African artists Loela Barry and Johan Kritzinger add rich flavor to featured bulbs found flowering with abandon in historic gardens, homes, and cemeteries, transporting readers on their own bulb hunt. With undeniable Southern charm, Wiesinger describes the adventures he encounters while collecting these old favorites, dubbed the "comfort food" of the plant world. Show More Show Less.
