About:

An antique original 1806 hand coloured print depicting a Cambridge Blue flower

'Cambridge Blue' is a compact annual to 15cm, forming a low hummock of narrow foliage, with clear light blue, two-lipped flowers 2cm across in summer and autumn

Prints of this age were printed in black ink and then a team of artists would hand colour each print to match the natural colours of the plant.

Published in 1806 by Samuel Curtis in his series "Curtis' Botanical Magazine"
