FIRST PRINTED IN 1860 on the eve of the Civil War, Ladies' Southern Florist by Mary C. Rion was the first book to provide gardeners in the South with a comprehensive list of ornamentals - trees, shrubs, flowers, bulbs, and roses - ideally suited to the southern climate. This small but pivotal work is equally significant as the earliest garden book in the South written by a woman.
