Description

The giving, receiving and wearing of flowers can transmit a multitude of coded messages. The allusive language of floriography - much-used during the Victorian era to sidestep the strict social etiquette of the time - allows people to declare their love, warn a rival or wish good luck. Detailing the array of meanings attributed to flowers and plants, The Language of Flowers is sure to seduce horticulturists, history buffs and nature lovers alike.
