Iris Fanciers - Look No Further!
July 06, 2011
My husband, an avid gardener, enjoys growing irises because of their striking foliage, reblooming capability, and scents.
Irises: A Gardener’s Encyclopedia by Claire Austin is absolutely the best book on this subject. The text is very brief and concise, but provides a good overview and beautiful illustrations of dozens of iris species. It covers a wide variety of topics which includes cultivating, hybridizing, and caring for these colorful and fragrant flowers. This is an indispensable reference for anyone who appreciates their beauty and versatility.
If you are a dedicated iris enthusiast or want to become one, this is the book to check out!
