The intention of this book, is to introduce to readers a wider range of plants suited to gardening in Mediterranean climate areas of the world. Since the 1970s appreciation of the challenges and pleasures of gardening in Mediterranean climates has grown rapidly, sufficiently so for a thriving society to operate on an international scale. This has supported a number of books on the theme that explore the plants, style, history and personalities of the genre. Yet there remains ample room to write more, especially concerning the enormous variety of plants as yet scarcely known that can adorn our gardens. It is now widely accepted that the Mediterranean climate regions are those found around the shores of the Mediterranean itself, much of coastal, central and southern California, Cape Province in South Africa, the south-west corner of Western Australia, coastal and southern South Australia, and much of the Southeast corner of Australia including Victoria and southern New South Wales, and the east coast of the North Island of New Zealand.There are, in addition, many other parts of the world that offer climates that fall within the broadest boundaries of the concept -- cool, wet winters and long, hot, dry summers.
