Staples, George W. and Derral R. Herbst. 2005. A tropical garden flora: plants cultivated in the Hawaiian Islands and other tropical places. Bishop Museum Press, Honolulu. 908 pp.

"'A tropical garden flora' is a reference manual about cultivated tropical garden plants. This book will be valuable for gardeners in the Hawaiian Islands and similar climate areas around the world. It describes more than 2100 species of tropical and subtropical plants, provides brief descriptions and keys for identification, and weaves together the origins, uses, biology, landscape properties, and practical tips for propagating and growing each species. The rigorous taxonomic research that underpins 'A tropical garden flora' assures that each species is correctly identified and reconciles many discrepancies between the botanical taxonomic literature and the horticultural names known to gardeners, as well as correcting errors in naming that have been repeated in other works.
