Medieval illuminations, 17th-century Flemish paintings and modern polls show that our favourite flowers have remained remarkably constant down the centuries. Beautifully illustrated with paintings and prints, this book celebrates twelve of the most popular, including the rose, daffodil, violet, tulip and lily. Willes examines their origins and how they reached our flowerbeds, their social history and symbolic associations, and recommends public gardens where they can be enjoyed today.
