'Wild Lithops'

View larger image of 'Wild Lithops'Description:
This is a substantial book for those who want to know more about where the plants grow, what they look like in habitat and their variability. It isn’t about cultivation, or the cultivars which are in fashion these days. Based on his 16 field trips the author suggests a new simplified taxonomy. There are profiles of 60 people who have been prominent in their study and also a comprehensive bibliography. Well illustrated with heading on for 2000 photos, you’ll get a good idea of the leaf patterns as there is hardly a flower shown – maybe to show the patterns but the author said he travelled in Southern Africa during the Summer – to avoid the European winter – so no doubt too early for most of them. 2017 12 x 8 ½ 487 pages
