Book Review "Garden Bulbs for the South

        I recently acquired "Garden Bulbs for the South" from Amazon.com for 
~$16. It contains a fairly large section dealing with iris and irid relatives 
and their treatment in a warm climate. Though little info is presented about 
specific modern hybrids, he recommends trying remontant beardeds in areas which 
have problems with erwinia. The information on bearded and beardless species in 
particular is pretty extensive. In general he presents cultural requirements, 
plant hardiness, pictures, plant history, location and availability and garden 
usage/companion planting suggestions for each type or species of bulbous plant 
in a non-textbook format that I found a pleasure to read. Even though I am a  
resident of California and not technically in "the South" I find this book 
useful in trying marginal plants for my area.

any heavy rain.
