Product Details

Three hundred of the most beautiful and groundbreaking botanical images in the world are showcased in this stunning coffee table book, which explores the remarkable beauty and diversity of plants and the roles they have played in our collective global history and culture.

It contains works by renowned botanical illustrators, photographers, artists, and scientists in addition to previously unpublished and rare images. The text blocks below each image provide succinct summaries of each work’s importance and other relevant information often including details about the featured plant or plants, and the artist’s technique.

The book concludes with a historical timeline featuring significant dates in the history of agriculture, farming and gardening, a plant taxonomy, a glossary, and selected biographies of some of the artists. This remarkable 352-page hardcover book will provide unending hours of enjoyment for anyone who loves plants, flowers, gardens, and fine art.

The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.


We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the Shipping Details box for each item. Please refer to the Shipping Details box to determine the earliest shipping time. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at expected time of delivery.
