Description

 A flower is not a flower alone; A thousand thoughts invest it'

All over the world, flowers are an integral part of human culture whether it's the perfect table centre for a wedding, a beautiful bouquet for a birthday, a message of thanks, or to pay one's respect at a funeral. But, while everyone knows that red roses signify love, few may realise that an entire language of flowers exists with every bloom, foliage and plant having a particular emotion attached, be it hazel for reconciliation, wisteria for welcome or ivy for fidelity.

This unique language was created by the romantic early Victorians who carefully planned every bouquet and posy so as to deliver a desired message. Bringing the language to a new generation, this beautifully illustrated hardback miscellany contains fifty profiled flowers, a dictionary searchable by emotion, and ideas for creating bouquets and arrangements for specific occasions. Whether you're a flower enthusiast, a history buff, or simply looking for an informative read, this gift book is a true botanical treasure.

Mandy Kirkby is an editor and flower enthusiast.
