The European Garden Flora is the definitive manual for the accurate identification of cultivated ornamental plants and has been designed to meet the highest scientific standards. The vocabulary has nevertheless been kept as uncomplicated as possible so that the work is fully accessible to the informed nurseryman, gardener and landscape architect, as well as to the professional botanist. Volume VI concludes the Flora and contains accounts of 38 families of dicotyledons, including the largest family of flowering plants, Compositae (with over 190 genera), plus many other genera of horticultural importance such as Calceolaria, Penstemon, Hebe, Solanum, Buddleia and Sencio. Comprehensive keys are provided at the level of family, genus and species and line diagrams are included to illustrate important diagnostic features of critical taxa. Reference is made to useful illustrations and taxonomic accounts, and a small amount of guidance on cultivation is provided for many genera.
