Concise, insightful texts by Noel Kingsbury complement the images, providing botanical, historical and ecological information on each flower.

The guide provides tips on using colour and light to enhance harmony and also includes helpful sidebars for everything from reducing noise pollution to stress-free housekeeping to serenity-building exercises.
