Singapore has numerous wild plants that grow and flower freely in our city-state, adding colour and beauty to even the most urban and drab of areas. Yet, all too often, we walk past these common flowering plants without even noticing them. And when we do, we are able to name only one or two – perhaps the common touch-me-not, or the morning glory.


Here, then, is an easy-to-use guide to help the general public fully appreciate and put a name to the many wayside flowers of Singapore.


This book is in full colour, with excellent close-up photography for each flower, showing each species in close detail, so that its parts can be clearly seen. The book also shows the plant in its typical natural environment, be it up a wall or in a drain.


The flowers have been grouped by their predominant colour – blue, green, orange, pink, purple, white or yellow – making it easy for the user to locate the flower in the book.
