This book covers over 700 species of Tasmanian flora, mostly flowering plants, but it also includes all the conifers, and a few lilies. Not included are grasses, ferns, mosses and their allied groups, nor any orchids. Each species is described in layman terms covering: size, shape, leaf and flower forms, flowering time, fruit form, habitat and distribution, and cultivation. It is an ideal reference book. All species are illustrated with at least one colour photograph. This revised edition includes updated descriptions, improved photographs, complete index of common and botanical names, information on natural distribution and cultivation.
