tropical plant guide
There are quite a few guidebooks on tropical plants out there in the bookstores, but none I feel, can quite compare to this publication: 'Tropical Flowering Plants - A Guide to Identification and Cultivation' by Kirsten Albrecht Llamas. It is probably one of the most comprehensive guides around, containing more than 1500 colour photographs of tropical and sub-tropical flowering plants with descriptions of the families, genera, species and cultivars, including country of origin, general maintenance, propagation and horticultural use. This is truly a bible and a definite must have for any die-hard gardener!
