The Complete Language of Flowers : A Definitive and Illustrated History Paperback / softback

Part of the Complete Illustrated Encyclopedia series

Description

The Complete Language of Flowers is a comprehensive dictionary for over 1,001 flower species.

Along with a visual depiction, each entry provides the flower's name, characteristics, and historic meanings from mythology, Medieval legends, folklore, and flower poetry. For centuries, symbolic flower meanings have fascinated readers, writers, poets, and suddenly smitten couples alike.

Extremely popular during the Victorian era, these floriographies flourished and versed the public on the hidden meaning of popular flowers like peonies (bashfulness) and tulips (passion). Coupled with stunning full-color illustrations, this beautiful reference is a must-have for gardeners, florists, and flower enthusiasts.

Whether you're looking to arrange the perfectly bespoken wedding bouquet or to understand what the yellow rose you just received from an admirer means (friendship), this updated floriography is a visual delight.
