An informative introduction gives such useful information as morphology of the flower, ecology, classification, and cultivation. The individual entries that follow describe over 160 cultivated species and offer visual symbols for the temperature and light necessary for optimum growth, as well as whether a particular species has a scent. SimonandSchuster's Guide to Orchids is a spectacular and authoritative reference to this exotic and fascinating flower.
