This book will appeal to gardeners who are taking on the challenge of growing these enchanting blue poppies.
Capturing the variable blue to violet spectrum of the translucent flowers is a photographic challenge and the accompanying text is essential reading to appreciate the subtleties within the genus.
The photos in this book illustrate not only the flowers but also leaf rosettes and seed capsules to aid identification as well as colour plates to help identify each cultivar.
Plant descriptions are interspersed with background stories of how cultivar names have been fixed to specific plants.
This book will inspire gardeners to look out for the best blue poppies to plant in their own garden.
