The Sydney district is one of the great wildflower regions of the world with over 1500 species occurring within an hours drive of the city centre.
This field guide contains 268 of the more common species, or those with striking attributes. Each page is devoted to a single plant -- there is a full-colour photograph and a straightforward description, overall distribution, flowering period, habitat, particular notes and information on its specific location.
The book aims to encourage an appreciation of the floral beauty and variety of this area, and to foster the conservation and wise management of plant communities so they will be here for future generations to enjoy.
This guide engagingly and authoritatively introduces the wealth of wildflowers that are easily accessible to everyone living in or visiting the city of Sydney.
