Amy Stewart, a prize-winning novelist, takes readers on a global, behind-the-scenes tour of the flower industry and shows how it has attempted, for better or worse, to reach perfection. She finds the farmers, geneticists, hybridizers, and florists who are trying to create, produce, and market flowers that are larger, more vibrant, and more robust than anything the natural world can offer. An eccentric horticultural legend who developed the most well-known lily, a breeder of gerberas in every colour imaginable, and an Ecuadorean farmer raising magnificent roses, the floral equivalent of a Tiffany diamond, are among the people featured in this book. And she constantly comes across the astonishing nexus of sentiment and commerce, as well as nature and technology.
