Loudon, Jane Webb (1807-1858)
Jane Webb Loudon was orphaned at seventeen after the death of her father.

She also began writing botanical books, her first being the very popular and successful “Instructions in Gardening for Ladies”, although she is most well known for “The Ladies Flower Garden of Ornamental Perennials”. Loudon is renowned for her monumental works with lavish plates.
