Well illustrated, large 8vo, pp 145, a very good copy in dustwrapper. [Green in the garden is at once the most common colour of foliage and the rarest colour found in flowers. Whether you're a gardener looking for a jolt of freshness or a floral designer seeking inspiration, this charming collection of unexpected plants provides a palette of flowering greens for year-round display. Combining Marie O'Hara's sumptuous photography and Alison Hoblyn's evocative text, Green Flowers explores the history, botany, care and cultivation of green-flowered plants. The hand-picked selection includes trees, grasses, vines and climbers, annuals, perennials, bulbs, wildflowers, exotics, orchids, edible plants and water garden plants. The appeal of the selection is broad: Jack-in-the-pulpit provides curiosity, fritillaries and columbines lend quiet beauty and green roses, hellebores and irises are an excellent foil to their more colourful companions. Eighty-four plants are included in all. Complete tips on growing and arranging the plants are given for each entry, as well as insight into the plants' myths, history and lore.]
