Pretty Maids is a book about thirty remarkable women who have been paid the exquisite, fragrant compliment of having flowers named in their honour.
This unique book celebrates both the lives of the women and the beauty of the flowers dedicated to them. Thirty ‘Pretty Maids’ are featured with biographies of each illustrated with photographs and paintings. Complementing each maid is a photograph of the eponymous flower as well as horticultural notes on how to grow it to the best advantage. A fitting tribute to remarkable women and their floral namesakes.
