the plant lover's guide to Dahlias is every thing I hoped it would be. It is full of information Planting, caring for, winter protection if you are in northern zones. A big plus is the hundreds of pictures of dahlias and their names so the reader can find the plants they would like. Further there is an index concerning who to write for further info and to order from, plus and where to find Dahlias farms.
The book gives a nice overview on dahlias. They are grouped not by flower shape(cactus, pompon, anemone, etc.) but by color. It makes easier to spot one particular dahlia. If you only have the name you can search in the index at the end of the book. Nice! The writings are good and motivational. They make you wish to have them all. Pictures are very good.
love it, better than my other dahlia books, very informative, great photos and color.
