Floriography - The Myths, Magic and Language of Flowers Book

  • Flowers can talk. Red Roses say ‘I love you’, white lilies offer condolence and poppies invite us to remember. For thousands of years, humans have used flowers as a language, a short-hand for emotions and meanings.
  • This book takes a fascinating look at floriography, and shows how we still use this secret language across the world today.
  • The author Sally Coulthard covers the meanings of flowers and where they come from, whether in ancient mythology or hedgerow folklore.
  • Floriography covers 50 well loved flowers and plants. It is a beautifully illustrated guide that will take the reader on a journey through the history, legend, anthropology and literature of flowers, showing how modern society still relies on the meanings of flowers.
