This is the first complete and illustrated monograph of the genus Lachenalia,a horticulturally important and botanically diverse plant group. The relatively small number of Lachenaliaspecies that have been cultivated worldwide are known for their exceptionally showy blooms and fascinating leaves, and for emitting distinctive aromas ranging from spicy to sweet to the distinct scent of coconut, in the case of one species. The horticultural potential of the genus has yet to be fully realized, and many more species await introduction into cultivation. All species in this volume are described, classified, and illustrated, and are accompanied by detailed information on their history, morphology, phylogeny, phytogeography, pollination biology, cultivation, and propagation.
