It's no exaggeration to say that daylilies are the premier flowering perennial. From a handful of wild species belonging to the genus Hemerocallis, breeders have produced tens of thousands of hybrids in a dazzling array of colors, patterns, and shapes. Adding to their appeal is their hardiness, ease of care, and ability to combine well with other plants. With so many daylilies currently available, a pictorial guide to the best and most exciting cultivars is essential. More than 1700 daylilies - 1400 of them new to this edition - are illustrated in close-up, detailed photographs.Each photograph is accompanied by a comprehensive description that includes information on color, size, bloom season, and parentage. Also included are chapters on daylily physiology, the history of the genus, the history of daylily hybridizing, hybridization techniques, and cultivation. Peat and Petit have created an authoritative reference and essential resource for anyone - nursery professional, hybridizer, designer, or enthusiast - who wishes to explore the vast potential of these beautiful plants.Alle Produktbeschreibungen

(Peat and Petit 2008) and am extremely disappointed. To start with, the
printing quality is very substandard and the colours range from
washed-out to overly dark. Part of this is due to mediocre fotos, but
most is due to poor preparation of the material; saturation, colour
balance, contrast, etc. Then, some of the pictures are clearly doctored
and not to the best for true presentation.
I've noted quite a few mistakes, such as 'Betty's Pick' with an
illustration of what may be 'Toothpick', an extremely unsuitable picture
of Clayton Burkey's 'Lola Branham' (as well as other wonderful cultivars that
are represented by sub-optimal shots), as well as the lack of many fotos
that apparently should have been included and didn't make it in the
book, but the descriptions did, some with pre-editing remarks still
attached! I'm afraid to go further for fear of what I'll find! One
can't blame the fotographers, here, rather whoever did the editing.
After all, an illustration should be representative, shouldn't it!
I must ask myself, what happened? The book was delayed in printing for
what ever reason, possibly waiting for fotos, but to actually print such
a poor product is simply irresponsible!
On the positive side, I find the layout much preferable to the first
edition, being chronological, plus the book starts with a retrospective
of what came before, but the actual chapter organizazion and design is
somewhat loveless. Someone wasn't doing their job! As this book will
certainly sell a few copies and hang about on the bookshelf as one of
the few references for the modern daylily, I find it a real shame that
such a potential was simply wasted. Wish I knew why! I have to admit,
since Timber Press was sold, the quality has dropped to below sea level.
Do I sound P.O.ed? You bet! This was not a cheap book to purchase and
I had it shipped over to Europe. A real waste of money, IMO. The first
edition may not be up-to-date anymore, but it is far superior in quality.
Es werden nur Taglilien mit gerüschtem Rand gezeigt,
die ich als amerikanisch kitschig empfinde.
Der deutsche Geschmack orientiert sich an
natürlich wirkendenden Blüten.
Zudem wird keine einzige Bezugsquelle
für Deutschland angegeben.
