For centuries the orchid – in all the sizes, shapes, colours and fragrances in which it is found all over the world – has symbolised all that is exotic and mysterious. Far from being beyond the capability of the average plant lover, orchids offer the opportunity to enter a fascinating world of dizzying diversity, where growing a single healthy specimen can be satisfying, but plant collecting can become a passion. Includes over 1100 of the most popular and fascinating species, colour photographs, classification, natural habitat and location and a guide to pronouncing the often lengthy names.
