|700 colour photos and colour illstrations and maps throughout|
The second volume of a two volume set of books covering small and tall eucalypts.
This volume covers 84 smaller-growing eucalypts. Another 120 similar species are briefly described.
Researched, designed and written for anyone interested in the identification, selection, growing, management, and appreciation of eucalypts. The wealth of detail, which includes several photos of key features for each species, make these two books invaluable to a wide audience, not just in Australia, but in other regions of the world where eucalypts are grown.
Many of these species are already commonly grown and seen in gardens, streets, parks and farms throughout Australia, while others are rarely planted but have vast potential for much wider use, both in the urban landscape and in rural areas.
For each of the species included in the books, a double-page provides the following information:
- Height graph indicating its usual and maximum height.
- Images of cultivated plants with an estimation of their age.
- Images of the bark, foliage, buds, flowers and fruits.
- Map of Australia indicating its natural and planted distribution
- Why plant me? overview
- Meaning and origin of the name
- Features of the species, including flowering times
- Natural distribution and habitat
- Cultivation and uses
- Similar species
- A table indicating environmental preferences and tolerances
