Of the 74 genera covered in this book, only a few are native to Florida. Most are
more spectacular trees from the tropical parts of the world, chosen for their ability
to adapt to Florida's subtropical climate —with a little understanding and care.

If you can't get enough of majestic trees, brightly colored flowers, and anything that grows from the ground up, you'll love this guide to 74 outstanding tropical flowering trees that will grow in Florida's subtropical climate. From the huge canopy of red blossoms on Royal Poinciana, to the eye-dazzling yellow of Tree of Gold, the most breathtaking of Florida's flowering trees are represented within the pages of this full-color book. Looking for beautiful trees that don't mind the cold of north Florida? Try Golden Rain Tree, Mimosa, or Crape Myrtle. Prefer easy-to-grow trees that aren't fussy about soil conditions or location? Golden Rain Tree, Mimosa, or Yellow Jacaranda are a good bet. Ambitious gardeners may want to talckle Scarlet Bean, Sacred Garlic Pear, or Lance Pod. People wishing to add to their collections of horticultural books—take note! This book contains photos of species not found in any other major publication. Bombax rhodognaphalon, Bauhinia semla, Bauhinia refescens, and Jacaranda jasminoides are examples of species listed in obscure technical journals without photos to do them justice. Written for both the seasoned arborist and the weekend gardener alike, this comprehensive handbook includes the Latin name and pronunciation as well as the common name for each tree listed. You'll also find practical cultivation tips and advice on caring for the flowering trees in your neck of the woods, including information on soil conditions, pruning, watering, and feeding. Temperature trend charts, a zone map, a handy glossary, and a bibliography round out this complete guide to growing the most colorful, beautiful trees in the Sunshine State.
