About this item

The Natural History of Garden Flora is a lushly packaged plant guide that explores the unique history of 133 of the most commonly grown garden plants. Organized alphabetically by common name, it explains the ecological niche that the plant inhabits in the wild and the relationship between the garden plant and its wild relatives. It also provides a breeding history that throws light on the genetic background of the plant we have today, the folklore behind a plant and its wider uses beyond its value as a garden plant, and how historical events left their mark on the plants. Fully illustrated with botanical art, vintage seed packets and catalogs, and new and historic photography, it is a gorgeous and timely reference for every gardener's library.
