Notes
  • Anybody who takes a walk in the bush and wants to identify a wild flower will find Thistle Harris an indispensable guide. Whether it is the tiny helmet orchid that crouches among the fallen leaves, the pink and creamy Dracophyllum secundum that hangs its sprays down the walls of deep gullies, the prickly needlebush of the heathlands that decorates iteself with fine white lace,t eh snow dasies of Kosciusko, the scaly buttons of the dry inland or the yellow marsh flowers of the swamps, here their recognition is made simple by precise description and by clear instructions in colour. The more technical classifcations at the back are intended mainly for the student. Over 250 Australian wild flowers are portrayed in natural colour from paintings by the late Adam Forster, and were chosen to encompass, as far as possible, the wild flowers most likely to be found in each State, though many ofthe rarer types are also included.
