COMPLETE LANGUAGE OF FLOWERS
A Definitive and Illustrated History
S. Theresa Dietz

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-colour illustrations, this beautiful reference is a must-have for gardeners, florists and flower enthusiasts. Whether you're looking to arrange the perfectly bespoke wedding bouquet or to understand what the yellow rose you just received from an admirer means (friendship), this updated floriography is a visual delight.

Along with a visual depiction, each entry provides the flower's latin name, characteristics and historic meanings from mythology, mediaeval legends, folklore and flower poetry.
