9780881929195: Green Flowers: Unexpected Beauty for the Garden, Container or Vase

Green in the garden is at once the most common color of foliage and the rarest color found in flowers. Whether you're a home gardener looking for a jolt of freshness or a floral designer seeking inspiration, this charming collection of unexpected
plants provides a palette of flowering greens for year-round display.

Combining Marie O'Hara's sumptuous photography and Alison Hoblyn's evocative text, Green Flowers explores the history, botany, care, and cultivation of green-flowered plants. The hand-picked selection includes trees, grasses, vines and climbers, annuals, perennials, bulbs, wildflowers, exotics, orchids, edible plants, and water garden plants. The appeal of the selection is broad: Jack-in-the-pulpit provides curiosity; fritillaries and columbines lend quiet beauty; and green roses, hellebores, and irises are an excellent foil to their more colorful companions. Eighty-four plants are included in all. Complete tips on growing and arranging the plants are given for each entry, as well as an account of the interesting myths, history, and lore.

About the Author:

An enthusiastic gardener and flower-arranger, Alison lives in Oxfordshire, England.

Review:

Chlorophyll never looked so good as in the gorgeous close-up photographs by O'Hara. Green Flowers is an intriguing look at often overlooked plants for both gardeners and non-gardeners looking for inspiration through nature. -- Holly Andres Los Angeles Daily News 20090207 Changing the misperception that green is merely a foliage color, this high-quality alphabetical plant directory is even more browsable and attractive than previous Timber Press offerings focusing on single colors. -- Bonnie Poquette Library Journal 20090301 [Hoblyn] is known for her sophisticated all-green flower arrangements and ideas for growing an all-green flower border. ... If you need to spice up your garden with some unusual plants, you'll find plenty of inspiration here. -- Marianne Binetti Seattle Post-Intelligencer 20090312 The premise of this book is an imaginative one and shows a great love of nature. Little wonder that author Hoblyn is a painter as well as a gardener. -- Nancy Schoeffler Hartford Courant 20090529 The pages are lovely and occasionally surprising, capturing ordinary plants ... in stunning photographs. -- Holly Collier Star Tribune 20090728 An elegant and readable introduction to the subject, and has certainly got me wanting to try a few of the lesser-known green gems for myself. -- Elspeth Thompson Gardens Illustrated 20090401 After falling in love with Green Flowers, you'll want to grow and design with Mother Nature's favorite color as revealed in her blooms, blades, and leaves. Green will never again seem ordinary. -- Debra Prinzing Flower Magazine 20091001 It puzzles me when people say their garden has no color in it. 'Green is a color,' I will gently remind them, as Alison Hoblyn ably proves in her delightful book. -- Jodi Delong Halifax Chronicle Herald 20091206
