Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Once-forgotten flowers and the stories behind scores of captivating plants from the past are rediscovered in this fully illustrated volume. Alternately admired and considered out of fashion, these enchanting blossoms have been the bedrock of spectacular bouquets and have provided medicine and food throughout the centuries. This book delves into the history of classic bulbs, ravishing old-garden roses, antique annuals and perennials, heirloom houseplants, and vintage vines. Tips on how to create period floral arrangements and an extensive list of hard-to-find heirloom suppliers make it easy to reintroduce these beloved garden species into a contemporary setting. Keeping vintage flowers available and teaching gardeners how to grow these heirlooms — this book ensures that neither they and nor their fabulous history will disappear.

Synopsis:

Describes the history of varieties of antique flowers and houseplants, and provides information on their care and suppliers.
