Beloved for their eye-popping colors that often mark the arrival of spring, tulips are a perennial favorite. The Genus Tulipa combines the latest scientific research with beautiful and useful illustrations, creating a visual delight as fascinating as the flowers themselves. Each species is fully illustrated with botanical paintings, color photographs of the plants in habitat, and distribution maps. In addition, the experts of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, lend their prowess to chapters on everything from cultivation to classification. Checklists of tulip species and their world-wide synonyms, nursery and buying information, and a glossary with diagrams round out this comprehensive guide.
