Set title graphic
Original card set
Also known as Wild Flowers Series 1, this set was issued in 1955 and is a set of 50 cards. The text printing on the back of the cards is blue. The card size is 36.5 x 68mm.
Set variations
There are distinct two variations of this set, one is printed on white card and the other on cream card, although there is a wide variation of tones between the two also available. This is particularly noticeable on the text side of the cards. The difference in card backs is not usually listed in catalogues. In addition this set can be found on almost paper thin card.
Reprint card set
No official reprint set issued, although the variation above may be due to reprinting.
Error cards
There have been noted instances of incorrect texts on the back of some cards but this cannot be verified.
An album was issued for this set, with the price of 3d. on the front.
Album variations
A reprint album with no price on the front was also issued.
No wallchart was issued for this set.
