T

his comprehensive, beautifully illustrated encyclopedia of plants contains information on over 20,000 plants from all around the world. Organized in an A to Z format by botanical name, the individual entries provide a detailed description of each plant and its features, notes on origin, cultivation requirements, growth habit, and propagations. The introduction explains the world’s 12 climatic zones and looks at the environment and the plants that grow in each zone.

Fascinating examples show how plants have adapted to their native habitat, be it arctic of tropical. Advice is also given on successful gardening in each zone. This is an excellent introduction to the main part of this very substantial book – the individual plant entries.

This book covers all the plant groups: trees, shrubs, annuals and perennials, bulbs, corms and tubers, cacti and succulents, lawns, ground covers, ornamental grasses, herbs, vegetables, fruit trees, other fruits, nut trees, palms and cycads, ferns, climbers and creepers, bromeliads, carnivorous plants, and orchids.

Flora has been written by a team of local and international botanical and horticultural experts, including some of the United Kingdoms leading garden names: Tony Lord, Martyn Rix, David Austin, Geoff Stebbings, Terry Hewitt, and Peter Brownless. This book will allow all gardeners to choose the perfect plants for their garden, and expand their knowledge of the wealth of plants available. The stunning colour photography from all around the world is the perfect complement to the text.
