Considering its small size, Cuba is home to a extremely diversified group of native plants, which includes its palms. Most are native to Cuba and no where else. The Palms of Cuba is the only comprehensive guide to all the 98 taxa of palms native to Cuba along with their classification and an identification key. Included are descriptions for each species, distribution maps, habitat types, conservation status, cultivation needs and other useful information. Both the novice backyard grower and the serious palm aficionado will find plenty of useful information on which species can be grown in the landscape. The 232 pages include over 420 photos of the palms in habitat and a glossary of terms as a reference for the reader.
