Item description for The Book of Mediterranean Peonies by Gian Lupo Osti...
For the first time ever, all the species and subspecies of Mediterranean tree peonies that grow wild along the coasts from Gibraltar to the Dardanelles are described and illustrated. In the footsteps of the great Victorian plant hunters, author Gian Lupo Osti has found these plants in their natural habitat along the Mediterranean coasts and inner valleys and has studied, classified and photographed them. Their robust qualities, together with the beauty of their flowers, elegant bearing, ease of cultivation and rapid adjustment to all kinds of terrain, make these Mediterranean tree peonies perfect for many gardens.
