Description
A visual delight and comprehensive reference exploring the symbolism and powers ascribed to over 1000 plants, trees, seeds and flowers. From Abies and Abutilon to Zigadenus and Zinnia: each entry lists historical, symbolic and colour meanings, sometimes specific to different parts of the plant; plant characteristics, medicinal properties, folklore and horticultural facts. Exquisitely illustrated with colourful botanical drawings. A definitive reference: send bouquets with meaning, enlarge your appreciation of day-to-day plants, and grow a medicine chest in your garden. Arranged by scientific name, with an index of common names.
