About this book

This remarkably beautiful book is an extensive guide to the country's plant life. The text contains a detailed description of the country's different habitats and the plant life of each, accompanied by stunning full-colour photographs. The book is structured by proceeding from familiar habitats, such as flower beds, roadside verges and hedgerows, to rarer habitats such as natural woodland and unique areas such as the Burren. There are over 1,000 wild flowers to be found in Ireland, but a majority of them are so rare as to pass unnoticed. This book focuses on the 300 most common species. But the text is only half the story: Carsten Krieger's exceptional photographs bring the subject to life in a vivid and immediate way. Contains over 300 beautiful, full-colour images of Irish wild flowers photographed in the field.
