I am tickled to death to find this book. I have read it cover to cover and there is a lot more information that I can remember from the first reading. Thank goodness I had the smarts enough to buy it-I'll have a great reference on hand.

An excellent book! It is 100% canna from cover to cover, with fascinatingly detailed information. I love canna even more after reading it.

The book is also of high quality. It just feels nice in my palms, and it is a favorite. A marvellous writer.

The best reference book around devoted entirely to growing cannas. Great information to grow cannas well and for cannas in general. Also, descriptions for many varieties.
