Digging around for a great holiday gift for the gardener in your life? Flora's Orchids is a reference to all things Orchidaceae, covering 1,500 plant types (including this Paphiopedilum species, being enjoyed by a frog), cultivation and propagation techniques, tips on exhibiting orchids and conservation issues. But it's the photographs that make this book such a visceral pleasure, celebrating the orchids in all of their elegant, lacy, racy and otherworldly incarnations.
