Matthews, Lewis

Protea. A Guide to Cultivated Species and Varieties. 2016. 369 col. figs. 296 p. gr8vo. Paper bd.
The proteas (Proteaceae) are a large and ancient plant family of Gondwana origins with an impressive diversity of flower and form, and an intriguing distribution pattern throughout mainly the Southern Hemisphere. In his spectacular photography, Lewis J. Matthews captures the exceptional beauty and unique characteristics of a broad range of cultivated species and cultivars - some are well known, while others are either new introductions or lesser-known examples that deserve wider cultivation. For inclusion in Protea, Matthews has chosen a comprehensive selection of the best species and varieties, including a large number not previously seen in print. They are certain to inspire readers to grow them in their gardens where climate and soils are suitable. After The Protea Book by Matthews was published in 2002, numerous outstanding hybrids were introduced; many with exquisite blooms that are very dramatic. The stunning hybrid leucospermums (Pins), bred at the University of Hawai`i Research Station on Maui, are a prime example of the successful work being carried out by plant breeders. In this latest book, a multitude of related species and new varieties are described and illustrated.
