After a drab winter, tulips triumphantly emerge from the spring garden, a colorful symbol of rebirth. These humble bulbs have been celebrated, stolen, and carried across oceans; at times they have been considered as precious as rubies. Happily for us, these days they are affordable luxuries--and easy to grow as well.

This charming little hardcover book includes:
  • 40+ full-color botanical illustrations
  • basic botany and history
  • everything you need to know to grow gorgeous blooms in the garden
  • tips for creating beautiful arrangements
  • quotes, lore, and notable gardens and growers
Like a bouquet of tulips, this book is the perfect hostess gift or Mother's Day present for gardeners and flower lovers. It's part of the collectible mini gift book series Little Book of Natural Wonders.

"In 'A Little Book of Flowers, ' a new series of single bloom titles, author Tara Austen Weaver weaves together basic botany and culture. Each posey-size volume reads like a very smart love letter to cultivating beauty. . .
