This ninth volume of the ENCYCLOPAEDIA OF AUSTRALIAN PLANTS SUITABLE FOR CULTIVATION sees the completion of a project that has been thirty years in the making.

With user-friendly presentation of information, including detailed line drawings and a selection of colour photographs, this book is an ideal companion for the amateur gardening enthusiast and professional horticulturalist.
