Summary The Macquarie Dictionary of Trees and Shrubs is a comprehensive listing of the plants found in Australian gardens, including native trees, shrubs and climbers, as well as those introduced from other parts of the world. The entries are arranged in simple alphabetical order, under both the botanical and common names. Each plant is fully and clearly described with all relevant botanical information, together with gardening tips and much to interest the general reader. The back section of the book contains The Grower's Guide, a chart that allows you to select plants for your garden on the basis of particular features and growing conditions such as size, colour of flowers, specific uses, soil type, etc. The Macquarie Dictionary of Trees and Shrubs has been written specially for Australian conditions. It is the ideal reference for the Australian gardener looking to learn about everything from the Eucalyptus rubida to the Magnolia campbellii to the Rhododendron (azalea).
