A Tropical Garden Flora: Plants Cultivated in the Hawaiian Islands and Other Tropical Places

A Tropical Garden Flora describes more than 2,100 species of tropical and sub-tropical plants, provides brief description and keys for identification, and weaves together the origins, uses, biology, landscape properties, and practical tips for propagating and growing each species. The plant descriptions and keys are augmented with Anna Stone’s line drawings of more than 400 species, a comprehensive illustrated glossary of botanical terms, derivations of genus and species names, and an extensive list of published sources for additional information.
