Lilies : A Guide for Growers and Collectors by Edward Austin-McRae
That is my bible out here in the lily garden. have read the book front to back on more then one occasion.
I have 2 copies........one in great condition and keeping that put and putting it away and another copy that I use in and outdoors for reference..
He was such an amazing person to have met I would think.....

I did a bit of reading on his past and wow he sure was very educated in his field.....
never hard of Oregon Bulbs before though

I was reading in his book about a man named North and wandered if he was any relation to the North on here as well........

any others we should take notice of.........??

I think another one that sticks out and read lots about so far is Leslie woodruff. Would love to know more of his cultivators...
