This unique encyclopedic treatment of tropical gardening was written specifically for Malaysia and Singapore, but it will be a valuable resource for gardeners in the American tropics as well. Included are detailed, illustrated listings of herbaceous plants, shrubs and climbers, trees and palms, foliage plants, orchids, vegetables, and fruit trees.

The adventurous gardener will find inspiration and challenges in the distinctive plant materials presented. The book assumes the mostly wet tropical climate of Malaysia, and adjustments will have to be made for local conditions of Hawaii, southern California, and Florida. However, the authors—distinguished botanists with much experience in the tropics—provide useful guidance on the requirements for each plant.

The breathtaking illustrated spectrum of tropical plants will be of extraordinary interest not only to sophisticated gardeners in tropical areas but to greenhouse enthusiasts everywhere.
