The lily has cultural connotations of romance, remembrance, love and innocence and can be found in literature, art and heraldry across the world where they have added dramatic elegance to gardens for centuries. With very glossy large pages and spectacular close-up colour photographs throughout, this magnificent guide celebrates the ornamental charm and delicate petals of the lily, beginning with the history of the flower from Greek and Roman mythology to the hybridisation of today. It is a reference to more than 50 well-loved and unusual varieties 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, the cheerful Perfect Joy in pink and the sophisticated orange with red spotted Lilium Superbum! Mascara has a goth-horror to it and is a lauded 'black' Asiatic hybrid. With an engaging commentary on each bloom, easy-to-follow advice and glorious photography, get the best blooms for wedding and parties, outdoor spaces or the most bountiful cut flowers. 240pp, 25.4 x 19.6cm.
