About this book

Includes 60 botanical illustrations of Hawaiian flora with watercolours that miraculously survived Hurricane Iniki and its near-total destruction of the author's home on the Garden Isle of Kaua'i. Species are depicted in various stages of growth, ranging from old leaves, young leaves, fresh leaves, ragged leaves, seeds, pods and capsules, buds, blossoms, and fruit. Also includes riveting text by David Mabberley, a world authority on botanical history.
