Summary

"This beautifully illustrated record of the more than 300 species takes a fresh look at over 300 species of Tasmania’s exquisite flowering plants. The full colour portraits together with a thoroughly sound and descriptive text provide a visual feast for the avid plant hunter. Researched with meticulous care, many of these intimate images have been produced solely for this guide and are seen here for the first time. Few words are adequate to describe the floral wonders of Tasmania. Combined with a will to discover for oneself, the images on these pages will entice both young and old to pack immediately to search for some of Tasmania’s botanical treasures."--Back cover.
