The European Garden Flora Flowering Plants : A Manual for the Identification of Plants Cultivated in Europe, Both Out-of-Doors and Under Glass, Hardback Book

The European Garden Flora Flowering Plants : A Manual for the Identification of Plants Cultivated in Europe, Both Out-of-Doors and Under Glass Hardback

Edited by James Cullen, Sabina G. Knees, H. Suzanne Cubey

Part of the European Garden Flora series

Description

The European Garden Flora is the definitive manual for the accurate identification of cultivated ornamental flowering plants.

Designed to meet the highest scientific standards, the vocabulary has nevertheless been kept as uncomplicated as possible so that the work is fully accessible to the informed gardener as well as to the professional botanist.

This new edition has been thoroughly reorganised and revised, bringing it into line with modern taxonomic knowledge.

Although European in name, the Flora covers plants cultivated in most areas of the United States and Canada as well as in non-tropical parts of Asia and Australasia.

Volume 1 contains accounts of all the Monocotyledons, which includes those groups known informally as the 'petaloid monocotyledons' (the Liliaceae and Amaryllidaceae in the first edition, divided here among 17 families), the grasses and sedges (Gramineae and Cyperaceae), the aroids (Araceae) and the large and diverse Orchidaceae.
