This is the revised edition of Australian Plants for Mediterranean Climate Gardens, first published in 2003. The book contains basic information on growing plants in containers, pruning and shaping of plants, watering, fertilizing, mulching, propagation, pests, and diseases. Over 100 very choice plants are presented under various groupings - groundcovers, tufting plants, climbers and ramblers, shrubs, and trees. Cultivation and propagation information is provided. A highlight for each section is utilizing plants for possible designs. The quick reference plant selection guide will help in choosing plants for specific areas and requirements. The Australian plants selected for this book have much to offer gardeners for cultivation in temperate and warm temperate regions where there is plenty of sunshine and a high probability of extended dry periods. In most cases, these plants will also perform well in cool temperate and subtropical regions throughout the world.
