Addional Notes:


The Botanical Magazine or Flower Garden Displayed remains the most important of all the small botanicals in the print world and has also become an authorative taxonomical series. New Zealand plants have featured in the magazine since 1791. The first New Zealand plants illustrated were Kowhai, Sophora tetraptera, seeds of which were collected during Captain Cook's first voyage, and Poroporo, Solanum laciniatum. A total of some 135 New Zealand indigenous plants appeared in the Botanical Magazine.
