CAROLYNE ROEHM is one of America’s most important tastemakers. She is the author of eleven books, includingA Passion for Interiors, A Passion for Blue & White, A Passion for Flowers,A Passion for Parties, At Home with Carolyne Roehm, and Presentations. A columnist forVeranda, she is a frequent lecturer at garden clubs, botanical gardens, junior leagues, and women’s organizations. She divides her time between her exquisite homes in Manhattan and Connecticut.
It has been more than a decade since Carolyne Roehm first shared her love of gardening and flower arranging. Now, for the first time ever, she turns her own photographic lens to that passion withFlowers, showcasing more than 300 images of the varieties in her abundant gardens, all captured at their most vibrant and exquisite moments throughout the season.

With a gardener’s intimate understanding and a designer’s elegant eye, Roehm shows us the flowers she has cultivated for decades in and around Weatherstone, her historic Connecticut home. While alternating dramatic close-ups with portraits of lovely arrangements and sweeping views of her land, Roehm writes with wit, emotion, and affection of what flowers have meant to her, as well as of the joys and travails of the committed gardener’s life.

What began as a casual hobby ultimately became a multi-year endeavor, as Roehm used her camera to explore the special relationship a gardener enjoys with her carefully nurtured beauties. The outcome is a remarkably personal visual essay: sumptuous, surprising, and as revealing of the sensibility behind the camera as the magnificent species that stand before it.

This beautiful objet d’art—a flower garden in a book—is Carolyne Roehm’s most significant and singular volume yet.

  • Fabulous book and price.

    I met Carolyn Roehm and purchased a signed copy from her. It was such a nice book, I purchased this one for a friend that likes flowers and gardening. Like me, she has it displayed as a coffee table book. Her other books are also very nice and I purchased them as well. Great gift for a friend...or you!

  • excellent book! shipping material needs help

    I purchased this book as a gift for my Dad, an avid gardener. The book is absolutely fantastic he loved it. the problem was that this was shipped as is - in a much larger than needed book shipper so it slid around while in shipping ... the book jacket ended up ripped and crumbled on one corner. when buying an"85$" book you dont want ripped corners. overstock you need to fit the shipper to the product or cover this book with shrink wrap then ship.
