horticultural writer, John Loudon, who designed the Birmingham Botanical Garden.
She began to write popular botanical books to help pay off the debts that her
husband incurred in publishing his Arboretum Fruticetum Britannicum. Mrs.
Loudon’s works are known for their delicate renderings of graceful botanical
subjects and are rarely found as individual prints.
