Almost impossibly evocative, the lily is a flower with a thousand tales to tell. It is a symbol of sex and passion; of goddesses and virgins. A sign of abundance and purity in the hands of a bride, it can also be torrid, divisive and capricious. It delights in complexity and frequently manages to be several things at once, yet its fabulous fragrance and sybaritic good looks have rendered it iconic across the globe.
This next title in Naomi Slade and Georgianna Lane’s series of beautiful floral gardening guides celebrates the lily in all its incarnations. From Greek and Roman mythology to modern hybridization, it features a selection of blooms that include both classic and contemporary varieties, and lilies for all situations, together with practical ideas 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.
“Naomi’s writing style is brilliant. Some of the descriptions put me in mind of Nigella Lawson describing food!! I was almost salivating!” – Advolly Richmond, Garden Historian and TV Presenter
