“Delightful…Next time you are lucky enough to be someone’s houseguest, consider arriving with a bouquet of either one of the Little Book of Flowers.”-The New York Times

After a drab winter, tulips triumphantly emerge from the spring garden, a colorful symbol of rebirth. These humble bulbs have been celebrated, stolen, carried across oceans; at times they have been considered as precious as rubies.
    Happily for us, these days they are affordable luxuries--and easy to grow as well. This charming little hardcover book includes 40+ full-color botanical illustrations, basic botany and history, everything you need to know to grow gorgeous blooms in the garden, tips for creating beautiful arrangements, plus quotes, lore, and notable gardens and growers. Like a bouquet of tulips, this book is the perfect hostess gift or Mother's Day present for gardeners and flower lovers! Perfect for flower fans, this giftable little love letter to the tulip is bursting with tips, tricks, and facts.
