A surprising number of terrestrial orchids are hardy, some able to withstand temperatures down to minus 50[degrees]F or minus 45.5[degrees]C. Though they have a reputation for being challenging to cultivate, in truth, most hardy orchids are no more so than a rose. This is great news for gardeners, who will enjoy filling their gardens with their enchanting fragrances, vibrant colour displays, and long-lived blooms. At the centre of the book is a catalogue of 103 hardy and half-hardy orchids. In addition to detailing the techniques of cultivation and propagation, the book covers conservation and includes lists of suppliers and organizations offering nursery-propagated plants - an especially critical issue for species in danger of extinction.
