The proteas (Proteaceae) are a large and ancient plant family of Gondwana origins with an impressive diversity of flower and form, and an intriguing distribution pattern throughout mainly the Southern Hemisphere. Through spectacular photography, Lewis J. Matthews has captured the stunning beauty and unique characteristics of a broad range of cultivated species and cultivars. Some of these are well known while others are either new introductions or lesser known examples considered to be worthy of wider cultivation.
