About this title


Featuring plants that grew in the UK and Europe's most famous medieval gardens, and which are still cultivated today the most beautiful, best and most naturally coloured species with the purest fragrance. This is a truly inventive, well-researched book, highlighting the beauty of flowers cultivated and wild, as well as gardens and bowers. Clay Perry's photographs include a lush series of studio flower portraits as well as shots of existing medieval gardens, chamomile lawns and fruit trees in blossom. From Peony to Poppy, Solomon's Seal and Columbine to Lily and Iris, the photographs emphasise the contemplative atmosphere of the gardens, all of which can be recreated today.

From the Publisher:

It was in medieval gardens that the healing arts, poetry, spirituality, a sense of order in the cosmos, and an appreciation of beauty took root and were cultivated. Flowers had significance almost incomprehensible to the modern–day gardener. Precious as jewels, painted and praised, they played a part in every courtly ritual and village romance. From peony to poppy, columbine to lily and iris, Medieval Flowers celebrates the species that grew then and still grow today. Master photographer Clay Perry reveals their stunning beauty in 140 color images, as Miranda Innes explores the rituals and festivals in which flowers played a major role. She also details the medicinal, cosmetic, and herbal uses of each plant, surveys the designs of physic, kitchen, and pleasure gardens, and introduces us to medieval gardens that can still be visited today. Complete with an illustrated directory that provides cultivation details for each flower, this is a book that will be coveted by all gardeners.
