Vibrant photography with close-up shots of extraordinary wildflowers.
Early botanists were astonished at the wealth of new plants they discovered in New Zealand; many of our flowering plants are found nowhere else in the world. The blue of the giant Chatham Islands forget-me-not, the lush yellow of the kowhai and the startling creamy-white Mt Cook lily are just a few of the vibrant colours captured in Rob Suisted s exceptional images.
Ranging through wetland, forest, grasslands and coastal habitats, introductory text and informative captions describe our native flowering plants, paying attention to those endangered species, such as the dramatic kakabeak, whose numbers are becoming scarce in the wild.
