This book present a fresh approach to conventional attitudes and ideas about the diversity and beauty of Australian flora. With Australia?s natural flora of well over 20,000 species, at least 400 are considered to have a notable degree of succulence.
This book covers approximately one hundred species from 40 genera and most are described and illustrated in some detail. There are additional notes on traditional and modern foods, availability, cultivation, conservation and other items of interest. Included are some of the most under-appreciated, diverse, and interesting Australian plants. Many of them are among the most drought or dry tolerant of all plants, though some are not always obviously succulent.
