About this book

Describes more than 2,100 species of tropical and subtropical plants, provides brief descriptions and keys for identification, and weaves together the origins, uses, biology, landscape properties, and practical tips for propagating and growing each species. The rigorous taxonomic research that underpins "A Tropical Garden Flora" assures that each species is correctly identified and reconciles many discrepancies between the botanical taxonomic literature and the horticultural names known to gardeners, as well as correcting errors in naming that have been repeated in other, less authoritative manuals. The plant descriptions and keys are augmented with Anna Stone's line drawings of more than 400 species, a comprehensive illustrated glossary of botanical terms, derivations of genus and species names, and an extensive list of published sources for additional information. Gardening activities have impacts on the environment and on society, both positive and negative. The positive impacts have long been recognized and applauded; the negative effects are increasingly being scrutinized, leading to better choices and more responsible gardening. "A Tropical Garden Flora" addresses such topics as invasive plant species of garden origin, native plant use in home gardening, and ecological side effects of common gardening activities. Practical suggestions are offered so that we can all be responsible home gardeners. "A Tropical Garden Flora" offers a unique combination of information that makes this book a must-have for gardeners in the twenty-first century.
