A great many cultivars of plants have been named for members of the royal family. ('Princess Irene' tulips and 'Queen Elizabeth' roses being two good examples).  Have you ever thought about what kings and queens grow in their gardens?  Montezuma, the ruler of ancient Mexico, grew dahlias along with hot peppers.  The emperors of Japan kept extravagant varieties of lotus blossoms, irises, and peonies.  In the Islamic world lavish cultivars of double-flowered jasmines were know to grow in the hidden courtyards of sultans and rulers.  This fascinating class will explore some of the best stories and legends regarding royal flowers, as well as more modern designs being used for royalty today.
