View larger image of 'Echinocactus'Description:
Following on quickly from their Epithelantha book, this one looks at plants towards the opposite end of the size scale! It starts with the history of the plants, geographical distribution, ethnobotany and uses (anyone for Echinocactus “Marmalade”?) before going on to the species including “Homolocephala”. There are descriptions, distribution with map, ecology and cultivation, and each is preceded with a narrative of the author’s experiences when seeing the plants in habitat. Final sections look at general cultivation considerations, pests, propagation and bibliography. Well illustrated with many colour photos mainly in habitat, many large format. Translated from the Italian edition. 2011 9 ½ x 6 ½ 86 pages.
