Few places in the world have such a diversity of wildflowers as the Iberian peninsular and Common Wildflowers of Spain testifies well to that fact. Author Austen Colwell has built on his weekly wildflowers feature in “Sur in English” to put together a guide of value to both the casual observer, with no scientific knowledge, and the keen botanist.
- Precise descriptions of more than 300 flowers.
- Colour illustrations of each to afford on-the-spot comparison.
- A glossary of plant parts.
- A list of English, Spanish and Latin names at the back of the book.
This is a guide to accompany the traveller who wants to get maximum enjoyment from Spain’s natural wonders.

Austen Colwell began his horticultural career at the age of 14 as an apprentice gardener in Dudley in the UK. After gaining his M.H. degree at the RHS in Wisley he moved to a botanical post in Cardiff's Parks Department. Gaining further extensive experience in other horticultural and leisure-orientated appointments with local authorities stretching from Scdunthorpe to Poole, he taught horticulture in the Midlands following retirement. Finally he moved to southern Spain where he has continued to nurture his long-standing interest in cultivated and wild plants, not least in his weekly column in SUR in English.
