Each species is given a very comprehensive description including habitats, growth cycle and cultivation, and illustrated with a beautiful full page colour botanical art illustration by Gillian Condy. On heavier paper than the Cotyledon book and in a slip case. Again a magnificent Umdaus Press production. 2005 12 ¾ x 9 ¼ 156 pages
