This is an innovative and remarkably user-friendly guide to the identification of the flowers of Britain and northwestern Europe. By organising the species by their colour group first (and by family within that colour group), this guide enables those less familiar with flower taxonomy to quickly and easily find what they are looking for - a great improvement on the often-frustrating business of trawling through a conventionally-organised guide. The lovely artwork by acclaimed illustrator Marjorie Blamey, with a neat, focused and simple text, makes this book a joy to use.
Marjorie Blamey is one of Europe's leading botanical illustrators with a acclaimed career in field botany. She has illustrated numerous books including Wild Flowers of Britain and Ireland and Wild Flowers of the Mediterranean.
