Description
Red roses signify love, of course, but a complex language of flowers attaches meaning to many blooms and bits of foliage, be it hazel for reconciliation, wisteria for welcome, or ivy for fidelity. The early Victorians in particular understood these meanings, and planned every bouquet and posy carefully to deliver a desired message. This attractive book, with elegant drawings, a ribbon marker, and a cloth cover with illustrations and foil stamping, profiles 50 flowers and plants with their associated sentiments and emotions, and provides ideas for creating bouquets and arrangements for specific occasions. It makes a fine companion to Vanessa Diffenbaugh's novel The Language of Flowers.

"Illustrated in the style of a Victorian guide to flowers, this is a delightful little book concerning itself with the allegorical meanings ascribed to flowers, and snippets of Romantic literature where these allegories can be found. A must for lovers of flora and poetry alike."Woman's Weekly
