The European Garden Flora is the definitive manual for the accurate identification of cultivated ornamental plants. It is designed to meet the highest scientific standards but the vocabulary is kept as uncomplicated as possible so that it is fully accessible to the informed gardener and landscape architect as well as to the professional botanist. Although based upon Europe the series will be an extremely useful reference on plants in cultivation throughout the world. Families, genera and species are described, keys are provided and guidance given on the cultivation of each genus. Volume III is the third in a series of six; it contains accounts of the first 49 families of dicotyledons, including many well-known trees (Salicaceae, Betulaceae, Fagaceae, Ulmaceae etc.), two large families of popular succulents (Cactaceae and Aizoaceae) and the horticulturally important genus Berberis. Volumes I and II, which have already been published, contain the ferns and their allies, the conifers and the monocotyledons.

From the reviews of previous volumes: 'There is a wealth of information here, both scientific and practical. The authors have achieved what might have seemed impossible; they have taken a step towards the relief of the botanist's frustration in the garden and at the same time they have provided the horticulturalist with a concise compendium of modern botanical knowledge.' Nature
'… one of the most important horticultural publishing ventures of the century … The work aims to describe not only all the woody and herbaceous plants known to grow in gardens throughout the continent but also those we grow in greenhouses. The eventual total will be more than 25,000. While the illustrations are of line drawings, which usually tell you much more than photographs, throughout there are keys by which, when the six volumes are complete, you will be able to identify almost any garden plant you are ever likely to encounter.' The Daily Telegraph
'It contains a welath of taxonomic and practical information. Gardeners will find in it the science they need and botanists may learn how to garden. Both will be able to identify plants. Libraries and all those who need to find quick botanical and horticultural answers will treasure it as a rich source of information.' Bulletin of the Torrey Botanical Club
'… Most plants grown in European gardens can be found in our glasshouses or growing in North American gardens. Consequently, the title of the series can be misleading and does not reflect its usefulness to virtually every gardener the world round.' American Scientist
