Compiled using popular superstitions and ancient folklore, this dictionary focuses on the meaning of flowers. It looks at such subjects as how the Cowslip became the symbol of joy, and how the bramble bush became known as the plant of envy. It also covers more practical uses that can be gained from flowers, such as finding a cure for insomnia or memory loss. The book has information about the flowers' symbolic meanings, ancient folklore, fairylore, superstitions, spells and remedies.
