New, unblemished. 79 b/w and 32 color illus. This is the story of Arthur K. Bulley (1861-1942), a colorful eccentric and visionary with a nose for profit and a love for flowers. He paid intrepid plant hunters to scour the mountains of China and the Himalayas for alpine and hardy plants. The plant hunters became famous, new species were discovered and gardens became enriched. Some of the plants introduced by Bully were several crocuses rhododendrons, Himalayan primulas and many other alpine flowers. Using formerly unpublished archives, author Brenda McLean shows the depth and passion Bulley had for flowers, often angering conservationists. He created natural habitats and a nursery to show and promote new flowers.; 184 pages
