Hulda Klager only had an eighth grade education, but she created an easy-pealing apple and more than 200 varieties of lilacs.

It started as a hobby with the apples and turned into a passion to develop a twelve petal lilac. Sometimes her family felt at odds with her, but they fully supported her as she worked with the plants.

There were family tragedies and seasonal floods, but Hulda and her family persevered in Woodland, Washington. And triumphed over all the odds.

Chapter One

I loved this book. My grandmother’s yard has lilacs and it’s so fun to go there and smell the flowers. After reading about Hulda Klager and how she chose and cultivated her lilacs, I have a new respect for all the lilacs I see. I am looking forward to going into my grandmother’s yard this year too see the colors and count the number of petals.

One of the most interesting things I learned about Hulda Klager, besides her ability to cultivate over 200 variety of lilacs was learning about how she went to Seventh Day Adventist Bible Studies and church services at a Presbyterian church.

I highly recommend this book. It is for anyone, but especially for those who have an interest in lilacs and gardening or the kindness and passion of one woman. Please pick up a copy today!
