About this book

Often confused with grevilleas, hakeas are not well known, but these natives are increasingly in popularity in the garden as more come into cultivation. People are becoming more familiar with hakeas and beginning to appreciate their many uses.

Most hakeas are shrubs. Many bear beautiful flower spikes, followed by large, unusual fruits which are popular in dried flower arrangements. Often flowering in winter and early spring, they attract native birds and other wildlife. Some are fragrant. They are tough and easy to grow and will thrive in all sorts of soils and conditions. For waterwise gardeners, hakeas are a godsend and we can expect to see many more of them under cultivation in the future.

Hakeas: A Field and Garden Guide is the first fully comprehensive book on this plant group. It features all 148 species and 15 subspecies known. It is an important contribution to our knowledge of native plants. For botanists who have, to date, had no reference for this group, the book will prove invaluable. For gardeners, the cultivation notes will guide them in their selection and care of these useful native plants.
