The Burren and the Aran Islands are renowned worldwide for their beautiful wild flowers and plants. Charles Nelson has selected 136, the most widely occurring plus a number of special plants. Each plant is illustrated by a colour photograph. Plants are described using the common English name, followed by Irish and Latin (botanical) names. Flowering periods and each plant's distribution are given.
Dr Charles Nelson was senior research botanist and horticultural taxonomist at the National Botanic Gardens, Dublin. He authored/co-authored many books about gardens and plants and presented a series of television programmes for RTE entitled 'A Growing Obssession' (about Irish gardens), and for many years contributed to the radio programme 'Sunday Miscellany.'
