This is a nature lover’s companion for many of the wild flowers that grow in the Himalayan region and the greater part of the sub-continent, as well as throughout the northern temperate zone around the world. The flowers in this book have been illustrated from live field studies. Their practical medicinal uses, anecdotes and poetic passages have been combined to provide informative and interesting reading. Uniquely the flowers have been arranged by colour to provide an easy field guide reference. Each one has been identified by its common, botanical and family names.
