Since Victorian times, the pansy's pert face has charmed gardeners and gentlefolk alike. From tiny Johnny-jump-ups to velvety violas, these multihued blossoms have inspired artists, textile designers, and even cooks, and stationery, keepsakes, and embroidered linens have immortalized the flower that means "thoughts of you." Now Emelie Tolley and Chris Mead, gardening and herb experts extraordinaire, offer A Potpourri of Pansies, a beautifully illustrated tribute to their very favorite flower.

Pansies are among the easiest flowers to cultivate, both indoors and out, and because they are simple to dry, they can be used in myriad decorative ways, such as fragrant potpourris or embellished candles. Chris and Emelie showcase the versatile pansy with recipes, gardening hints, simple bouquets, and trivia and lore. Pansy lovers will rejoice in this gorgeous celebration of a perennially popular flower.
