Britain's Wild Flowers

The National Trust
The 19th-century poet John Clare wrote, ‘I love wildflowers (none are weeds with me)’. A treasury of traditions, superstitions, remedies and literature, tracing the history of over 70 of Britain’s wild flowers, from agrimony to yarrow. Charmingly illustrated. Discover which flower was used as a medieval lie-detector to test the innocence of suspected criminals, or stuffed in the shoes of Roman centurions to prevent damage to their feet as they marched. From periwinkles, beloved of Chaucer, and the oxlips and "nodding violet" growing in the forest of ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’, the book celebrates the important role wildflowers have played in literature.

Hardback, 280 pages, 191 colour illustrations.
7 ¾” x 5 ½”.
