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.

This complete and authoritative work provides identification keys, full descriptions, and line drawings that make it possible to identify 383 native and naturalized species of trees, shrubs, and woody vines found in northern Florida and adjacent Georgia and Alabama. Casual observers of the lower coastal plain may at first see a landscape dominated by pines. Closer observation reveals a great diversity of plants--patterns of contrasting vegetation caused by the complex physical and biotic factors at work. In this richly vegetated area, a rise of only four feet in elevation can bring significant changes in community composition, changes comparable, perhaps, to those occurring on a four-thousand-foot mountainside. The descriptions in this guide are useful not only for identification but also for their help in enhancing the user's knowledge of the plants. Each description is followed by information on the habitat in which the species is known to occur, the species' general location within the area under study, and its overall geographic range. Whenever possible, vegetative characteristics have been used in the keys so that the book is useful beyond the sometimes brief flowering seasons of the species. The use of technical terminology has been minimized in the keys and descriptions, and a full glossary is provided. Based on thirty years of constant study and firsthand observation, Robert K. Godfrey's manual is a definitive work on this area's notably diverse woody flora, from the common longleaf pine (Pinus palustris) and Jackson-brier (Smilax smallii) to locally rarer species such as the fragrant sumac (Rhus aromatica), Spanish bayonet (Yucca gloriosa), and ornamental Chinese tallow-tree (Sapium sebiferum).
