THE ENCYCLOPEDIA OF CULTIVATED PALMS.

R.Riffle, P.Craft, and S. Zona. (2nd Ed., 2012)

The Encyclopedia of Cultivated Palms is the definitive account of all palms that can be grown for ornamental and economic use. Palms are often underutilized as a result of their unfamiliarity—even to tropical gardeners. To help introduce these valuable plants to a new audience, the authors have exhaustively documented every genus in the palm family. 825 species are described in detail, including cold hardiness, water needs, height, and any special requirements. Generously illustrated with more than 900 photos, including photos of several palm species that have never before appeared in a general encyclopedia, The Encyclopedia of Cultivated Palms is as valuable as an identification guide as it is a practical handbook. Interesting snippets of history, ethnobotany, and biology inform the text and make this a lively catalog of these remarkable plants. 950 color photos, 528 pages, 8-1/2” x 11”, hardbound w/color dustjacket. Regular $59.95. OUR SPECIAL PRICE…………………………………..$49.95
