A book which deals with 36 individual cut flower crops (Achillea, Alstroemeria, Amaryllis & Hippeastrum, Anemone, Anthurium, Antirrhinum, Callistephus chinensis,Campanula, Centaurea, Dahlia, Delphinium, Dendranthema, Dianthus caryophyllus, Digitalis, Eustoma, Gaillardia, Gerbera, Gladiolus, Gypsophila, Helianthus, Heliconia, Iberis, Lilium, Limonium, Matthiola, Narcissus, Orchids, Polianthes tuberosa, Rosa, Salpiglossis,Scabiosa, Solidago, Strelitzia,Tulipa, Zantedeschia and Zinnia), and two separate groups of plants which are either axillary to cut flowers or have included many other individuals to be used as cut flowers, i.e. “Cut Foliage/Cut Greens and Other Fillers” and “Proteaceous Ornamentals”. Apart from the crops, the book is also supported with a comprensive Glossary and Index in the end. In floriculture, no book can cover all the crops entirely under a particular topic due to the crops being innumerable and also as many new crops are being brought out every year but efforts have here been made to cover all the important ones looking into the past publications on the topic, the world scenario, the crop importance, the curriculum of M.Sc and Ph.D. students worldwide, and as a guide to floricultural scientists & professors. Looking into its coverage and application, this book will work as a most remarkable guide to commercial and enthusiastic growers of cut flower crops worldwide.
