Botanists, horticulturalists, and ordinary plant lovers have been fascinated by Japanese indigenous plants for more than two centuries now, dating back to early discoveries by Western botanists visiting Japan who collected specimens that influenced horticulture and breeding throughout Europe. The excitement generated by Japanese plants in the West led botanical painters in Japan to take note, and thus began a long tradition of depicting their native flora.

With this wonderful collection, Kew honors that legacy through a celebration of modern Japanese botanical art. It offers twelve removable postcards featuring stunning art that was newly commissioned for the book Flora Japonica. Each card depicts a different specimen found in Japan, presented in full color. No fan of Japanese plants will want to miss this lovely little gift.
