Kew Pocketbooks: Festive Flora is a celebration of the plants integral to religious, cultural and national festivities around the world, used as decoration in wreaths, garlands and shrines, for their scent, and in festive recipes.

An introduction by Kew ethnobotanist Mark Nesbitt provides an overview of these plants, and detailed captions accompany each painting, making this a charming keepsake.
