Clay Perry's Fantastic Flowers
Clay Perry's Fantastic Flowers is a breathtakingly beautiful celebration of flowers by one of the world's most respected botanical photographers.

With his eye for colour, light and form, Clay Perry has selected the 100 most dramatic, unusual and beautiful from the traditional English Rose to the Californian Jade Vine and the Australian Sturt's Desert Pea. To capture their splendour, many are photographed in their natural habitat.

Notes on planting and propagation accompany each entry, making this a practical planting guide as well as visual delight.

The stories behind these flowers - geographical, historical, literary and botanical - are intriguing. In her engaging text, Maggie Perry explains what makes each flower special and offers advice on how to enjoy them.

...the photography is to die for, exquisite closeups of some of the most beautiful flowers you will ever see and the history behind them is equally spellbinding...a must have book!
