Easy to grow plants for your area
The plants featured in this book have been selected for different zones around Australia. These are shown on a map in the introduction -- colour coded to correspond with zones given in the species entries -- so you can see at a glance whether a plant will grow well in your area.
Each plant is illustrated with a colour photograph and information is given on its size, habitat, flowering season, hardiness, frost tolerance and uses, as well as its requirements for sun or shade, soil ,drainage and pruning. Cultivated varieties are often featured because these tends to be hardier, more commonly available and easier to grow.
