The Language of Flowers: A Miscellany
A gift of flowers has long been a popular way to mark an event. Everyone knows to send red roses to their sweetheart but few realise an entire language of flowers was created by the Victorians. By attributing a unique definition to each flower, every bouquet delivered a special message.
Reviving the Victorian tradition, this beautifully ilustrated miscellany contains profiles of fifty flowers.
