Dodoens's Florum, et Coronarium was devoted to flowers, ranging from herbaceous annuals and perennials to rare bulbous plants, that were traditionally used in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries to form garlands and wreaths, coronae; in fact, a garden planted with such flowers was sometimes referred to in this period as a "hortus coronarius." Among the flowers he describes are the rose, violet, lily, marguerite, marigold, amaranth, iris, narcissus, sunflower, anemone and carnation and sweet-smelling herbs such as thyme, marjoram, lavender and lavender cotton."
