THE AMARYLLIS MANUAL

A work and reference book for the dedicated amateur or the established professional assembles an authoritative amount of information on this one species that goes all the way from the international history of the cultivated plants to marketing and standards, exhibitions and the cultural assets of this horticultural specialty. There is the physiology of the amaryllis, divisions and types of the cultivated, breeding methods in regard to variation and inheritance traits, disease and insects and their control, and propagation and amaryllis culture in maturity and maintenance, for the main part of the book: there are 7 appendices -- of chromosome numbers, nomenclature, generic and sub-generic diagnoses, organization, nurseries and dealers, commercial sources, a glossary of terms -- and there is a bibliography.
