Absolutely beautiful presentation. Wonderful glossary as well as stunning floral arrangements. An absolute must for serious or novice botanists.

An exciting book

This is not a stodgy gardening book! No gloomy instructions by a horticultural authority with a bad haircut, tweed skirt, and sensible shoes; no dreary shots of the manor and its perenial beds. This is a lively story of Clematis and the people who restored its place in the floral trade. The arrangements are exquisite, playful and inspiring.The colors are perfect; no washed out whites or saturated blues.The writing is personal; as if one were reading letters from friends who are enchanted by the beauty of the flower and enjoy its cultivation. Chalk Hill is part of an exciting new Northern California agriculture----- the best wines, slow food, organic farming, intriguing nurseries, and now, a Clematis nursery with cut flowers, olive oil; and a balsamic vinegar barn. As a gardener, I appreciate the credit Kaye Heafey gives to those who do the hands on work. Too often we have been hidden behind gloomy old perennial beds.

A Celebration of Clematis: From the Gardens of Chalk Hill Nursery

This is an excellent book of outstanding photos, making me wish Chalk Hill was my own yard. My only criticism is that I wish there was more text to describe the varieties, as the map in the back does not give any detail about the varieties shown.
