This illustrated volume should appeal to anyone interested in flowers, especially gardeners, flower arrangers and herbalists. Over 100 flowers are illustrated, with a double-page spread devoted to each. The book provides all the relevant information from each flower's role in history, to the myths, folklore and old wives' tales which relate to it. Each flower's scientific and common names are fully explained, together with its contributions to natural and modern medicine. The book takes the reader through the seasons, linking each flower with the zodiac, festivals, celebrations and birthdays.show more
