Many times I've purchased varieties of outdoor plants that are,
naturally, appealing to the eye. My wife in particular likes these.
I oftentimes find that these are derived somewhere in the past from
native wildflowers. Is there a "hand holdable" book that lists the
basic parentage of such new cultivars? What is its title?
As an aside--Does anyone out there get just a little disgusted
when they go to their local store and find that, although they live
in the east, all that the store carries is California wildflowers?
