Editorial Reviews

Review

“Changing the misperception that green is merely a foliage color, this high-quality alphabetical plant directory is even more browsable and attractive than previous Timber Press offerings focusing on single colors.”

(Library Journal)

“[Hoblyn] is known for her sophisticated all-green flower arrangements and ideas for growing an all-green flower border…If you need to spice up your garden with some unusual plants, you’ll find plenty of inspiration here.”

(Seattle Post-Intelligencer)

“Chlorophyll never looked so good as in the gorgeous close-up photographs by [Marie] O’Hara.  Green Flowers is an intriguing look at often overlooked plants for both gardeners and non-gardeners looking for inspiration through nature.”

(Los Angeles Daily News)

The premise of this book is an imaginative one and shows a great love of nature. Little wonder that author Hoblyn is a painter as well as a gardener.

(Hartford Courant)

"The pages are lovely and occasionally surprising, capturing ordinary plants … in stunning photographs."
(Star Tribune)

"This is an elegant and readable introduction to the subject, and has certainly got me wanting to try a few of the lesser-known green gems for myself."
(Gardens Illustrated)

"After falling in love with Green Flowers, you’ll want to grow and design with Mother Nature’s favorite color as revealed in her blooms, blades, and leaves. Green will never again seem ordinary."


(Flower)

“It puzzles me when people say their garden has no color in it. ‘Green is a color,’ I will gently remind them, as Alison Hoblyn ably proves in her delightful book.”
(Chronicle Herald)

“This book deserves a place on the shelves of botanists, florists, plant lovers, and public libraries.”

Green flowers look magical combined with pink and coral flowers in your garden.
For Easter, my centerpiece was a huge arrangement of green roses and white tulips. The book, Green Flowers is for the creative gardener. If you like to do things outside of the box, you will enjoy this book.

Picture size/quality is poor in e-book version. Disappointing, considering that this is a core part of looking a beautiful green flowers.

I love anything with green blooms. This is a nice book but it could have been such much more!!!! I still recommend it as it is the only book I have found on green flowers. Just prepare to be a wee bit dissappointed.
