The Encyclopedia of Cultivated Palms is the definitive account of all palms that can be grown for ornamental and economic use. Palms are often underutilized as a result of their unfamiliarity—even to tropical gardeners. To help introduce these valuable plants to a new audience, the authors have exhaustively documented every genus in the palm family.

825 species are described in detail, including cold hardiness, water needs, height, and any special requirements. Generously illustrated with more than 900 photos, including photos of several palm species that have never before appeared in a general encyclopedia, The Encyclopedia of Cultivated Palms is as valuable as an identification guide as it is a practical handbook. Interesting snippets of history, ethnobotany, and biology inform the text and make this a lively catalog of these remarkable plants.

Recensione:

First published in 2003 the award winning Encyclopedia of Cultivated Palms has been a must have reference for all palm enthusiasts. The new second edition brings onboard world renowned and respected palm expert Scott Zona. It takes the opportunity to include many of the new palm species and varieties that have been discovered and introduced into cultivation over the best part of a decade since the first edition was published... With information on 825 species accompanied by over 900 colour illustrations this is a must have reference for every palm enthusiast and collector. It is great value for money and I cannot recommend it highly enough. --European Palm Society Journal
