Roses, hibiscuses, peonies, and other flowers, both rare and common, have long graced the pages of Curtis’s Botanical Magazine. Published continually since 1787 by the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, in London, it is described as “the longest running botanical periodical featuring colour illustrations of plants.” Since its inception, the magazine has presented the work of Britain’s finest botanical artists, among them, and featured herein, are Walter Hood Fitch, John Nugent Fitch, Anne Barnard, and Matilda Smith, who in her 45 years of employment at Kew, created more than 2,300 drawings for the publication. The 12 floral specimens in this calendar were picked for you from magazine issues spanning the years 1868 to 1918—an illustrated garden all your own.
