Reiley has fully updated his practical, hands-on approach with more of the detailed information that gardeners need to choose and grow these luxuriant, beautifully blossoming plants.

Media reviews

"This work is a good additon to gardening collections."

—January Adams, American Reference Books Annual

"This informative, well-written book kept me turning pages and making notes on the blank pages conveniently provided at the back with an ongoing sense of not being able to imagine what could possibly be around the "next corner"!"

Azalea Clipper

"This book is recommended for both experienced gardeners and novices. All will learn new information and be taught skills for improving selecting, growing, propagating, hybridizing and showing rhododendrons and azaleas."

"I go as far as saying this book must be in all personal libraries; you might even purchase two, as you will be constantly using this book! Yes, it is that good. But do not take my word for it, see for yourself, you will have no regrets."

—John E. Bryan, Gardening Newsletter
