“This is an exceptionally well crafted book that will do well on the reference shelf.” —Art Lichtenstein, Booklist

Flowerpaedia is a handy and engaging A–Z reference guide of over 1000 flowers, researched and compiled by botanical explorer Cheralyn Darcey. Readers will delight in understanding what each flower means—emotionally, spiritually, and symbolically—and the dictionary format allows people to search by the feeling or emotion they wish to convey or change. Expertly written with easy-to-understand insights, Flowerpaedia shares how we can work with a myriad of flowers to achieve balance, calm, or healing in our lives, homes, and gardens. Included is an index of each flower’s precise botanical name for easy and exact identification.

Written for the enthusiastic gardener and anyone charmed by the beauty and energy of flowers, this guide to understanding and selecting the right flower for every occasion and meaning will be felt and enjoyed by all.

Cheralyn Darcey is a botanical alchemist, organic gardener, independent natural history scholar, artist, educator, and the author of several books and oracle decks of nature magick, folklore, witchcraft, and ethnobotanical traditions, including Flowerpaedia, The Australian Wildflower Reading Cards, and Florasphere Calm. Her artwork has been featured in galleries and art prizes across Australia and the US including the Australian Museum and Manly Art Gallery. Cheralyn was an Environmental Artist in Residence during the International Conference of Eco Ideas 2011 and has a long association with many environmental organizations creating eco artworks, educational workshops, and presentations as well as working as an administration volunteer. Inspired by her pagan family upbringing and her passion for nature and magick, her work focuses on the spiritual, cultural, therapeutic, and physical connections between humans and plants.
