Recensione

At last we have a book written in English which looks at some of the best agaves, both species and cultivars, which can be grown in containers or outdoors in the ground where climate permits...As you are aware, agaves can change dramatically as they age and this guide takes that into account as it includes pictures showing each species from youth to maturity- a unique and valuable feature of the book and a great help with identification...I would thoroughly recommend this book to all cactus and succulent enthusiasts whether they are interested in agaves or not. --Literature Review (CactusWorld Vol. 30 (3))

L'autore

HASH(0xa1b74114) su 5 stelle Expertly Written and Up-to-Date Reference 22 maggio 2012
Di R. Pontius - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
This long awaited tome fills a critical void in the literature on Agaves. The long out-of-print Agaves of Continental North America from 1982 is still the best reference for species identification, however if one wants cultural information, including the new cultivars (hybrids), then you need this book. Greg has taken his intimate knowledge of all things Agave and translated it to the written word in a highly readible fashion. The photographs are exceptionally well done and the choice of images for this book is worthy of praise. There is a bit of wit and wisdom that interplay throughout the text and this I find uplifting especially compared to some of the more recent generalist works that are as dry as the habitats the plant live in. So some so much that I would need my own xeric adapation to continue reading them. This book will be great for the Agavologist, as Greg call the people whom study agaves, for the new and old collector, the botanical curious and the diehard agave enthusiast. It isn't often that one gets really excited about a new plant book and I admit that I haven't had those emotions evoked in quite a while.... until now. I spent nearly 3 hours pouring through the pages, reading the information and learning the history and culture of some of the more obscure agaves.

This is a Must Have for anyone whom grows Agaves. The author has done a tremendous job in writing and Timber Press, as always, has put a very worthwhile book out! Kudos to both.

I highly recommend this book for anyone with an interest in the Genus Agave. Although the cultural information is geared for the US, the book contains enough information for others to adopt for their climates. The illustrations are fantastic. Dozens of species have been photograped in habitat and presented in colour and there is an ID key at the end of the book for similar species.

HASH(0xa1b74d80) su 5 stelle Lots of good information 12 luglio 2013

The information and photographs are so useful I wish it covered all Agave species. The species and cultivars in this book are limited to cold-hardy, recently discovered, and under-appreciated species, plus innovative cultivars.

One extremely valuable feature is the suggestions for companion plantings that will thrive in the same conditions. Mr. Starr was a garden designer and grower of all sorts of xeric plants prior to specializing in Agaves, so his suggestions can be relied on. Another valuable point of the book are the photos of plants in their native locations, which gives understanding as to what conditions the plant really needs to be successful. And the photos are gorgeous. It exceeded my expectations. A good companion to the Gentry book.
HASH(0xa1b73eac) su 5 stelle Very good writing style and organization; excellent source of information 25 febbraio 2015

This book tries to appeal to several audiences. The first audience is the people of the horticultural world who would love the stories behind the plants and the locations where they were originally found. The other audience is the novice or intermediate agave gardener. It's tough to pull off such a multi-audience book, but I think the author succeeds because of his down to earth writing style, sense of humor, and organization. Most people who are interested in agaves will really like this book by such person who was historically key to bringing agaves to our attention.

HASH(0xa1b742ac) su 5 stelle Entertaining and informative 2 luglio 2012
Di Debra Lee Baldwin - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina rigida
Greg Star's passion for agaves comes through in his writing and photography. This is more than a compendium of the genus Agave, it is a highly entertaining read. Greg's field notes in particular lend a plant hunter's insight to the habitat of each species. His humor is delightful and unexpected. This book is more than a list of plants, it's a must-have for the succulent collector and for anyone intrigued by the agaves of the desert Southwest and Mexico.
