The founder of the Arts & Crafts movement, William Morris drew enormous inspiration from nature in the creation of his intricate patterns. Yet until the publication of this book, few people have realized the enormous impact he had on the evolution of the English garden. In fact, it was Morris who so inspired Gertrude Jekyll that she tamed her attention to the garden.Exploring the gardens Morris designed at his three homes and his factory, this lively mix of biography, anecdote and horticultural information details Morris's influence on garden design from the nineteenth century to today. The text draws greatly on Morris's lectures, poetry, and prose to illuminate his thoughts on gardening. The book also describes the native plants Morris included in his designs. Over forty plants -- all of which are readily available in the United States and Canada -- are pictured, and their growing habits defined in full.The interplay of nature and art is a highlight of the book which features over fiftyexamples of Morris's works, as well as paintings by Burne-Jones, Millais, and Rossetti shown side-by-side with the plants that inspired them.
