About this book

This field guide to the flowers of Britain and northern Europe is the most complete single-volume guide ever published. Featuring all flowering plants, including grasses, ferns, club mosses and trees, Collins Flower Guide covers over 1900 species. Leading botanical artists have been specially commissioned to ensure accurate, detailed illustrations. Up-to-date authoritative text, and original illustrations for each individual species appear together on the same page, so all the information you need is available at a glance. Flowers are arranged by family, with their key features displayed for quick and easy reference. This is an indispensable guide for all those with an interest in the countryside, from amateur to expert.

Please note: we have noticed that the paperback states "The Most Complete Guide to the Flowers of Britain and Ireland" instead of "Britain and Europe" as found on the hardback. Despite this, the contents of both versions are identical, and, as you can read on page 5 in the section on geographical coverage, the books *do* cover northern Europe.

The publisher had the following to say about this:
"It was indeed intentional that we changed the name of the paperback edition, because the author felt that it would be more appropriately named as such, being predominantly about the wild flowers of Britain and Ireland. That said, the book does have substantial significance for northern European distribution, as well, and entries include references accordingly."
