Wild Plants of Southern Spain

A Guide to the Native Plants of Andalucia

Southern Spain, and in particular Andalucia, is hope to many common garden plants, including daffodils, lavenders, and shrubs. At the same time, it is one of the most florally diverse regions in the world. This book covers that spectrum, from the commonplace to the astonishing.

Drawing on more than fifteen years of fieldwork in the region, Tony Hall details over five hundred different species in this volume, presenting all essential botanical information alongside more than six hundred photographs and distribution maps.  No one interested in the plants of this region will be able to forego this book.
