Book Description

The Silk Road, the fabled route linking Europe with Asia is still the most spectacular floral region on earth. Chris and Başak Gardner offer a pictorial celebration of the plants and landscape along 10,00 kilometres, embracing Turkey, Syria, Lebanon, Iran, Central Asia and China. More than five hundred wildflowers are depicted along with text descriptions, plant families and distribution. A delight for plantsmen and horticulturists worldwide.

Chris and Başak Gardener have led botanical and wildlife tours for many years. Both are professional botanists with extensive experience in identifying and photographing flowers. Başak was head of the herbarium at the Nezahat Gökyiğit Botanic Garden in Istanbul. Chris is also a garden designer and co-author of The Plant Hunters (1998). He has recently had a new flower named after him – Bellevalia chrissi – a species he discovered whilst leading a tour with Başak in the Anti-Taurus mountains.
