This long-awaited work was written by one of the world's premiere cycad horticulturalists. Loran Whitelock's thorough treatment of cycads worldwide makes this book an authoritative resource. Whitelock spent decades studying cycads in their natural habitats around the world and in cultivation.

Few plants can rival cycads for variety of foliage, size, and form. Whitelock has an entire career of involvement with these plants of ancient lineage, whose fossil history extends over 200 million years. He has generated enthusiasm for these tough and durable plants among an entire generation of plant enthusiasts, not only as survivors but also as ornamental plants of great intrinsic interest.

This book represents an opportunity to learn about and appreciate these magnificent, rare and endangered plants.
