About this book

This is a truly magnificent book of art work illustrating 38 iris species and cultivars. The illustrations are full size hence the size of Irises. The quality of the printing and paper is excellent. Each of the 38 art reproductions is supported with a description of the plant and notes on its origin. Both the history of the Iris and the part played by them in man's history and mythology, from France to the Orient are covered.

The section on the role of the Iris in art and emblems provides intriguing reading. Informative notes on cultivation and optimum location of Irises in the garden are given. Irises should be embraced by Iris gardening enthusiasts, botanists, and lovers of botanical art.

Barbara's paintings have been exhibited in galleries throughout South Africa and the USA as well as the United Kingdom. They are sought after by collectors for both their botanical accuracy and artistic merit.
