his Field Guide to Hostas,
Mark Zilis takes the mystery out of
selecting, growing, breeding, and propagating hostas. Through
photos, measurements, and comments he describes the 272 most
important hostas in existence. This guide does not stop at
describing varieties. It delves into topics of interest to hosta
growers such as nomenclature, taxonomy, history, and hostas in
the wild. All these features along with a thorough discussion of
problems faced by hosta growers and the value of various trees,
shrubs and companion plants make this a book that every serious
shade gardener, hosta aficionado, and horticulturist should own.
