Name that Flower is the definitive guide to identifying flowering plants cultivated and in the wild, Australian and worldwide. This comprehensively updated third edition includes changes to the plant classification system due to advances in molecular DNA analysis and the impact of online tools for plant identification.

Easily navigated, the book introduces the reader to the arrangement of flowers on plants, reproduction, plant structure and function, and the way plants are grouped and named. Methods for dissecting flowers and observing their structure for identification purposes are clearly described.

This bestseller is used extensively as a teaching text in numerous courses concerned with the natural world, such as agriculture, botany, environmental management, and botanical art course horticulture and landscape design. It is the go-to handbook for serious gardeners and keen botanists, professional and amateur.
