The Wild and Garden Plants of Ireland

By Wendy Walsh and Charles Nelson

Elegant and unconventional, this book of jewel-like watercolors by acclaimed Irish botanical artist Wendy Walsh portrays a personal selection of over 100 plants.

Presented thematically, the plants range from well-loved and distinctive native plants to exotic species introduced from the New World and Asia, unusual plants that grow in some of the more extreme environments in Ireland, and striking hybrids created by plant breeders.

Lively and accessible horticultural descriptions by distinguished botanist Charles Nelson accompany the paintings, celebrating the story of each plant along with its natural history. The great gardens, famous plantsmen, fascinating journeys and natural phenomena that have shaped the flora of Ireland spring to life in Dr Nelson’s engaging text.
