Description
A prettily presented guide to the meaning and associations of 50 much-loved plants and flowers. Inspired by the Victorian passion for floriography, ‘the language of flowers’, the selection reflects an overview of many such floral dictionaries and each flower has been chosen to accord with its popularity with modern growers and florists. From acacia, azalea and buttercup, to sweet peas, violets and zinnias: each entry provides an overview of the flower's history, and how its names and meanings came to be assigned through science, folklore and medicinal use. With beautiful colour illustrations from original paintings by the author, and studded with anecdotes, literary references, and quotations, this charming guide will imbue your garden and floral arrangements with greater meaning and wisdom. Includes a useful index of flower meanings.
