The Calochortus are a spectacular American wildflower that can be grown in domestic gardens. This beautiful and informative handbook describes the species, phylogenetic approaches to its classification, its history, and its horticulture in separate chapters. Three chapters are devoted to the subclasses Calochortus, Mariposa and Cyclobothra, with detailed description of each species and its distribution and habitat, cultivation, and references. The volume is illustrated with Parson's superb photos of the flowers, both the individual blooms and in their native habitat.
