9780881925531: Protea Book: A Guide to Cultivated Proteaceae

This spectacular guidebook details most of the cultivated members of this intriguing family, from Banksia to Grevillea to Mimetes, not just the single genus Protea. The author's expertise and lifelong passion for proteas is clear in both the text descriptions and photographs accompanying these entries. Essential advice on cultivation, propagation, and garden uses helps readers in the pursuit of growing their own proteas, and a section on commercial cut flower production previews a future of exciting new varieties.
