View larger image of 'Tree Aloes of Africa'Description:
First in a planned series of books covering all the Aloe family – including Gasteria, Haworthia etc – this covers what in latest classification are now termed Aloidendron, six species of Tree Aloe, plus the closely related Kumara plicatilis - what was previously known as Aloe plicatilis. As with all Ernst van Jaarsveld books, there is much wider information than just the plants themselves. It starts with an explanation about the background to the reclassification and botany, before going in to the history of the plants discovery by early settlers and explorers until the present day. Chapters then cover their distribution and ecology, and cultivation. The species are then covered in detail with an attractive full page colour painting by Eric Judd and colour photos showing the whole plant, flowers, habitat etc. 2015 10 ½ x 8 74 pages
