This comprehensive fully illustrated encyclopedia of plants contains entries for over 20 000 plants, providing a 'who's who' of the plant world.
Organised in an A to Z format by botanical name, the individual plant entries provide a detailed description of each plant and its features, notes on origin, cultivation requirements, growth habit, propagation and pests and diseases; the use of symbols in the entries makes them very accessible for easy reference. Flora 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, nut trees and other fruits, palms and cycads, ferns, climbers and creepers, and orchids.
