Item description for The Little Book of Orchids (Little Book of . . .) by Genevieve Carbone...

Since the first tropical orchid was introduced into Europe in 1698 these plants have accumulated an aura of rarified power and exotic form, especially since orchids prefer to bloom in secrecy of remote forests rather than florist's shelves where its tender flowers and leaves are too often bruised. There are hundreds of orchid varieties, each one a jewel of luminous colors and graceful form. Although growing orchids is a challenge, the reward to the dedicated horticulturist of a rare and gracious bloom is well worth the extra care. Indeed, some rare orchids are worth their weight in gold. The Little Book of Orchids presents this glamorous flower in each of its incarnations: in the wild; cultivated in the greenhouse; worn as a corsage; or even savored in cuisine (vanilla comes from the pod of a variety of orchid). The book includes an insider's guide to the best North American and European orchid gardens and nurseries, as well as information on orchid societies; a list of protected species; and a helpful identification scheme in color.
