Inhaltsangabe: Jean Andrews is a true Renaissance Woman: author, lecturer, artist, naturalist and gourmet cook. She has gathered fifty-two strikingly beautiful American wildflowers which she has paired with a treatise giving the common name, the scientific name, family, origin, range, description, bloom period, pollinators, habitat requirements, propagation, remarks & etymology, and references.
“My plant paintings are composites through time which present the generalized growth pattern of the plant, not only with the buds, the mature flower in various aspects-front, side, back-on to the seed pods but also the roots. This is a view of a plant impossible to capture with the camera.?
She presents a true wildflower florilegium—a gathering of flowers, a treatise on flowers—for our enjoyment. Illustrated and written with the cooperation of the National Wildflower Research Center and the Department of Botany at the University of Texas at Austin, the Florilegium also has observations by E. Arthur Bell, immediate past Director of the Royal Botanical Gardens at Kew, England and Ghillean T. Prance, current Director of the Royal Botanical Gardens at Kew.
