Protea Book, The - a Guide to Cultivated Proteaceae

Author(s): Matthews, Lewis J.


The proteas (Proteaceae) are a large and ancient plant family of incredible diversity in both foliage and flower form, which is shown to perfection in this spectacularly illustrated book. They have an intriguing distribution pattern throughout mainly the Southern Hemisphere. From the giant king protea of South Africa tot he spidery grevilleas of Australia; from the delicious macadamia nut of Queensland to the unusual New Zealand rewarewa (Knightia); from the richly coloured New South Wales waratah to the dainty blushing bride (Serruia) of South Africa's Cape; from the beautiful South American Lomatia ferruginea to subtly coloured Australian examples, a multitude of related species and new varities are described and illustrated.
