A Flower a Day by Miranda Janatka

Fascinating and richly illustrated stories of flowers for every day of the year.

Every day of the year a different species of flower bursts into bloom somewhere in the world. This collection of 366 flowers reveals not only their beauty but the fascinating botanical, literary, folkloric and historical stories behind them.

Discover the magnificent magnolia, which evolved more than 95 million years ago at the time of dinosaurs, and the specific perfumed rose that covers the land around Grasse in France. Read about the powerful medicinal elements of the Manuka bush flowers and the inspiration behind William Wordsworth's 'host of golden daffodils'.

Illustrated with stunning photographs and works of art, this collection is a celebration of flowers and their special place in both the natural world and our culture.'
