A book to which I often turn for information on bulbs is "The AGS
Encyclopaedia of Alpines" (2 vols.; Alpine Garden Society, 1994). It is
very expensive, if indeed still in print, but it contains entries by some
of the leading experts on the various genera, such as Martyn Rix on
Fritillaria, and also many entries on South American genera by John Watson.
Not all the plants included are true alpines, but merely plants that tend
to be grown by "alpine gardeners," which means devoted collectors of more
or less hardy plant species.
