This book surveys most aspects of orchids, including their fascinating life history, the range of floral form found among the 18,000 species, their cultivation and place in folklore and even their unique promiscuity, generating thousands of hybrids. The colour plates by Mary Grierson, former Official Botanical Artist at Kew, are complemented by line drawings, photographs, diagrams and charts. An important feature is the listing of orchid genera, with their size and geographical distribution, classified according to a new hierarchy.
