Lilies | Beautiful Varieties For Home & Garden | Naomi Slade | Autographed
AUTOGRAPHED COPY - EXCLUSIVE TO PURIRI LANE
The lily is an emotive flower, with cultural connotations of romance, remembrance, love and innocence. It is little wonder that the lily can be found in literature, art and heraldry across Asia, Europe and North America; where they have added dramatic elegance to gardens for centuries.
The wonderful book by Naomi Slade begins with the history of this flower, from Greek and Roman mythology to the hybridisation of today. The beautifully-presented reference guide features more than 50 well-loved and unusual varieties of lily, from the towering and prolific Arabian Knight to the fiery Viva la Vida, the pink pollen-free Distant Drum to the tall blonde bombshell Yelloween. Find out how to care for your lilies, with practical tips for all kinds of gardens, containers and balconies.
With engaging commentary on each bloom, easy-to-follow advice and glorious photography, this book will appeal to everybody who is after the best bloom for weddings, outdoor spaces or the most bountiful cut flowers.
