100 Australian Wildflowers is a beautifully illustrated book that can be used as a handy field and planting guide, as well as being a visual feast for the eyes.

Through fanciful botanical illustrations, matched with fun and detailed descriptions, author and illustrator Mel Baxter (aka Moonshine Madness) guides you through 100 native Australian flowering plants. These wildflowers will tell stories of cultural, historical and spiritual significance, and in some cases, planting these species in suitable conditions may help tackle some of the environmental issues we face. Each flower’s profile takes an intimate look at its habitat, and the exciting and dramatic lives of some of the flora and fauna that exist around it. Profiles also include traditional and edible uses by First Nations people, with many of the plant names listed in First languages.

With a strong focus on conservation, this book features a basic planting guide, advice on growing your own wildflower meadow, and information on where to find these flowers in the wild.

Take a trip through the Australian bush with 100 Australian Wildflowers and be inspired to cultivate your own relationship with wildflowers and connect with Australia's landscapes.
