The Brief Life of Flowers, Paperback / softback Book

The Brief Life of Flowers Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


The beauty of flowers is well known, inspiring creative minds from Botticelli to Beatrix Potter.

But they've also played a key part in forming the past, and may shape our future. Roses and thistles have served as symbols of monarchs, dynasties and nations.

We wear poppies to remember the First World War, but it was the elderflower that treated its wounded soldiers.

A rose might mend a broken heart, and sunflowers may just save our planet.

At once enchanting and intriguing, The Brief Life of Flowers reveals how even the most ordinary of flowers have extraordinary stories to tell.
