More than 240 species treated in this work which was begun by artist Jeppe in 1971. Almost all the species are illustrated with a fine watercolour illustration by Barbara Jeppe or her daughter, Leigh Vogt, and there is a selection of habitat photographs at the beginning of each genus. Expert descriptive text reveals the history, description, growth, ecology, and cultivation. Major work. $45.00? Don’t get me started. My price used to be $130.00.
