Melbourne, capital of the State of Victoria, is a gracious, vigorous and cosmopolitan city. The magic lens of Steve Parish has caught the quintessential Melbourne in this compact volume full of vibrant colour and sparkling text.Â
This is the second edition of Plants of Melbourne's Western Plains. The number of plants described has been increased while still limiting the range to indigenous plants that are available for purchase and suitable for gardens. All the plants described are indigenous to the basalt clays and alluvial loams found on what is described as Melbourne's Volcanic or Western Plains. The list is not exhaustive but it includes most of the plants appropriate and available for use in gardening, revegetation and landscaping.
