New or Used: $53.00
Tree ferns are successful survivors from the distant past, with plant forms dating back to the Jurassic period. Yet they are still rapidly evolving-they have even been discovered growing among the cinders of active Hawaiian volcanoes. In the wild, tree ferns occur in certain subtropical and tropical environments and in Southern Hemisphere temperate forests, where they give an immediate and characteristic flavour to the vegetation. They are commonly cultivated in warmer regions of the world, but various species grow well in cooler climates. This volume is the source of information on the living tree ferns. It surveys families, genera and species that are suitable for the home garden. It offers up-to-date taxonomy and detailed descriptions, as well as in-depth coverage of everything from tree fern use to conservation. In recognition of the horticultural importance of tree ferns, the authors provide extensive cultivation information, including propagation and diseases and pests. Although some emphasis is placed on those species cultivated in Australasia and the United States, species from around the world are also discussed.
