About the Book

Bibliographic Details

Title: 338: Iris sambucina (Bearded Iris)


In 1798, Joséphine, the wife of Napoleon Bonaparte, acquired the Château de Malmaison at Reuil. An enthusiastic amateur botanist, she surrounded herself with France's premier horticulturists, such as Jacques-Martin Cels, and created a spectacular botanical garden. Plants were sent from all over the globe with Joséphine's family in the West Indies sending her seeds and Napoleon providing seeds and plants from the botanic garden at Schönbrunn Palace in Vienna. Joséphine had la grande serre or huge greenhouse erected for the exotic plants she grew and, in addition to the species she was given, by ca. 1807, had spent 2,600 Pounds Sterling on plants from the Kennedy and Lee nursery at Hammersmith alone.
