About this book

Southern Spain, and Andalucia in particular, is home to many common garden plants, including daffodils, lavenders and shrubs. And yet it is also one of the most florally diverse regions in the world. Wild Plants of Southern Spain will help you identify plants that range from the familiar to the astonishing.

Author Tony Hall has visited Andalucia numerous times over the past 15 years, building his understanding of its flora and ecosystems, while recording his observations in notes and photography. In Wild Plants of Southern Spain Tony shares his detailed understanding of the wild plants of the region, from plants of the sandy Mediterranean and Atlantic beaches, to some of the highest mountains in Europe. Over 500 species are beautifully illustrated throughout with over 600 high quality photos and distribution maps. This is an essential guide for anyone wanting to understand more about the flowers of this region.
