Abstract:

"The genus Palmonaria includes perhaps the best known members of the vast Boraginaceae family, which contains 155 genera and about 2,500 species. The variety of shapes and habits, colours and features that this group of plants offers to the gardener is tremendous, enough to satisfy the needs of the most discerning plantsperson. Historically, the members of the borage family have been more than just decorative. They have been valued for their medicinal properties as well as for use as dye plants, for their oils, for supplying honeybees and even, in the case of the genus Cordia, for timber." "This book is an indispensable guide for gardeners, horticulturists and botanists who want to grow pulmonarias and other flowers in the borage family, or study them in the wild."--Jacket.
