    Comments about Flora Mirabilis:

    Can only use for my own enjoyment. Cannot be a gift because a page was missing on my original order and also its replacement. Information was especially interesting to me as I had recently read a book on the subject and wanted to compare.

            Our daughter gave this to my husband for a Christmas gift -- he loved it! It is absolutely stunning and an excellent reference guide for some often rare and hard to find plants. Highly recommend it.
