The Illustrated Herbal. The area that a Flora covers can be either geographically or politically defined. Among these are world-renowned books like Evelyn's Sylva, Duhamel's Traite des Arbres, Flora and sylva book Michaux's North American Sylva, as well as rather unknown treasures, such as Marshall's American Grove, which helped introduce the riches of American forests to European gardens in the eighteenth century.

She wanted to compare and contrast that plant with one or other Ceropegia species, all of which are very alien-like in shape and colour.

At the same time he introduced Flora and sylva book species to America from various parts of the world, including Camelliatea-oliveand crepe myrtle. Little is known about Sylvia's origins, other than that she came from a very poor family who had a farm in Mobile, Alabama. William Robinson was a gardener and journalist, who popularised the idea of a wilder garden, that became popular in English cottage gardens. Whether picking a small tendril of fragrant jasmine, collecting oversized branches of flowering quince, or making a garland of bay laurel, Foraged Flora is an invitation to seek out the beauty of the natural world.
