Beautifully illustrated with over 130 color photographs, this new, revised edition of the classic text on hydrangeas shows the enormous possibilities offered by the plants, describing 20 new cultivars not in the original edition. The first section provides information on natural history, cultivation, and propagation; the second section describes 100 cultivars, including salient characteristics and even leaf and sepal outlines. The information is highly readable, yet full enough to be used as a guide to identification. It's easy to see why the book is a classic, and no hydrangea enthusiast will want to be without this new, expanded edition.

Lots of information on different varieties, but the book clearly comes to us from the UK, so much of the info on growing isn't quite relevant for Louisiana. Also, most of the illustrations are black and white, which aren't the most helpful.
