Encyclopaedia Botanica: The Essential Reference Guide to Native and Exotic Plants in Australia
This single volume provides information on over 11000 plants, including many rare and lesser-known species. Every significant aspect of a plant is covered in detail: its botanical and common names, family classification, place of origin, natural habitat, preferred soil and position, drought and frost reactions, plant type, height and spread, descriptions of its parts, flowering times, propagation methods and, where relevant, hints on cultivation and care, special uses, poison warnings, and the history or legends involving the plant.
