Hawaii is the home of the world's greatest collection of tropical and subtropical plants. The Islands' benign and varied microclimates have accepted plants from many different places, ranging from the humid jungle rain forests to arid deserts, and from seacoasts sprayed with salt to mountainsides of almost Andean heights. With the enormous variety of plants that have made Hawaii one great botanical garden, comes also a great curiosity and search for knowledge about them. This volume features more than 100 striking plants, grown for their colorful or exotic flowers and foliage. All of these exotics have proved successful for the amateur gardener in Hawaii, including several unusual new varieties and cultivars, only recently made available commercially. Among these are the Hawaiian butterfly anthurium, the jewel of Burma ginger, ice-blue calathea, and a rare ginger from Tahiti.

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 Kuropean 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. Contains accounts of all the Monocotyledons, which includes those groups known informally as the `pelaloid monocotyledons' (the Liliaceae and Amaryllidaceae in the first edition, divided here among 17 families), the grasses and sedges (Ciramineae and Cyperaceae), the aroids (Araceae) and the large and diverse Orchidaceae.
