From Our Editors

Magnolias have a well-deserved reputation as "aristocrats" among landscape plants. Dorothy Callaway here provides an excellent guide to the species, cultivars, and hybrids, illustrated with more than 140 splendid color photographs. A reference of value to both layperson and enthusiast, The World of Magnolias documents magnolia history, culture, biology, taxonomy, propagation, breeding, and hybridizers. The only available book to encompass all the magnolia species, it provides an encyclopedic listing of the more than eighty known species. In addition, it offers the most complete listing of cultivars yet published. The number of available magnolia hybrids has skyrocketed in recent years; this book is the only comprehensive source of information on those hybrids.
