Tropical gardens are some of the most spectacular to be found anywhere. The rich diversity of tropical flora and climates allows for an astonishing variety of forms, both native and introduced. Modern tropical gardens afford a display of striking plants from all over the world, in arrangements that blend the traditions of many countries and cultures. This highly successful compendium presents a selection of the most beautiful gardens of Hawaii, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia, including Bali. For this revised edition, William Warren, a widely recognized authority on the subject, and Luca Invernizzi Tettoni, the internationally renowned photographer, have added a number of magnificent new gardens. Traditional and modern types are considered, and the origins and individual features of each example are discussed in full. With a special section giving information on garden features, this will be a source of ideas and inspiration to gardeners both in the tropics and in temperate regions.
