“A book that is as beautiful as it is useful. The drawings and photographs combine to give readers extraordinarily clear pictures of this genus. These are complemented by a well-written and thorough text. The authors have an obvious love and knowledge of their subject. This book belongs in all but the smallest gardening collections.” —American Reference Books Annual

“This is the first book-length treatment of these lovely flowers.” —Garden Gazette

Along with all the other pluses in Trilliums, the text is a treat to read. This is science at its best: understandable, interesting and useful. If you’re like me, you’ll find the only difficult part of owning this book is closing its covers and putting it down.” —Herbertia

“A splendid work.” —Taxon
