Lovely selection of images from the Natural History Museum London and informed text by this renowned botanist: profiling over 20 plant families. Her choice of illustrations is wide and deep, including many that are little-known, particularly from the Indian and Chinese collections by Fleming, Roxburgh and Reeves, and from the Saharunpore Garden. Worth purchasing for some of the highlights alone, eg Olga Makrushenko’s Magnolia x soulangeana. Families included are passionflowers, peonies, irises, conifers, cacti and hibiscus and 13 others.
