Item description for Irises (Gardens by Design) by James Parry...
This series of books celebrates some of the most beautiful, oldest, and well-loved flowers. Each book in the series looks at a different theme, and through images by leading flower photographers, reveals overlooked cultivars or rare species. Before looking at over 30 different species, each book investigates the plant in history, art, perfume, and medicine. Practical information is also included in each book, from pruning and plantings to suppliers' contact information. A large genus, the Iris occurs in a wide variety of habitats in most of the Northern Hemisphere. Almost all have showy and characteristic flowers, and many have become established garden favorites.
