The European Garden Flora is the definitive manual for the accurate identification of cultivated ornamental plants and has been 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 nurseryman, gardener, and landscape architect, as well as the professional botanist. Volume VI concludes the Flora and contains accounts of 38 families of dicotyledons, including Compositae (with over 190 genera), the largest family of flowering plants. Many other genera of horticultural importance such as Calceolaria, Penstemon, Hebe, Solanum, Buddleia, and Sencio are also discussed. Comprehensive keys are provided at the level of family, genus and species and line diagrams are included to illustrate important diagnostic features of critical taxa. References are made to useful illustrations and taxonomic accounts, and a small amount of guidance on cultivation is also included for many genera.
