The Complete Language of Flowers is a comprehensive encyclopedia providing the meanings, powers, facts, and folklore for over 1,001 flower species.

Along with a beautiful visual depiction, each entry provides the flower's scientific and common names, characteristics, and historic meanings and powers from mythology, medieval legends, folklore, and flower poetry.

For centuries, symbolic flower meanings have fascinated readers, writers, poets, and suddenly smitten couples alike. Extremely popular during the Victorian era, these floriographies flourished and versed the public on the hidden meaning of popular flowers such as:
  • Purple Tulip--Eternal love
  • Amaryllis--Adventurousness; Enthusiasm; Passion
  • Daisy--Beauty and innocence; Cheer; Childlike playfulness
  • Sunflower--Ambition; Constancy; Devotion
Together with stunning full-color illustrations and two indexes, one for searching by common flower name and the other organized by meaning, this beautiful reference is a must-have for gardeners, florists, and flower enthusiasts. Whether you're looking to arrange the perfectly bespoken wedding bouquet or to understand what the yellow rose you just received from an admirer means (friendship), this updated floriography is a visual delight.

Elegantly designed and beautifully illustrated, the Complete Illustrated Encyclopedia series offers comprehensive, display-worthy references on a range of intriguing topics, including birthday astrology, dream interpretation, techniques for harnessing the power of dreams, and the stories behind signs and symbols.

About the Author

Spring, summer, and autumn container gardening on a small apartment's balcony is all the more appreciated during the short growing season in the Enchanted Mountains of Western New York State where eclectic artist and writer, S.Theresa Dietz, makes her home. The twenty plus years of ongoing research into the subject of floriography symbolism and powers were driven onward by her fascination with all things magical and mysterious, along with her deep abiding love of all trees, plants, and flowers. She is the author of The Complete Language of Flowers.
