Description
Having previously showcased the fabulous strangeness of barnyard fowl in Extraordinary Chickens, Stephen Green-Armytage here turns his camera toward relatively common plants, and finds that they too possess uncommon beauty. Often shown against a dark background for contrast, these 225 photographs appear in lavish color, and include a close-up of moss that resembles a dense forest, Virginia Creeper glowing fiery red against a gray tree, and the half pink, half green leaf of the Yi-Yang Caladium. Other botanical studies include the Lotus, Sassafras, Venus Fly Trap, Flowering Kale, Maidenhair Fern, Marijuana, and the Variegated Hawaiian Banana. Horticulturist Dennis Schrader's text discusses the characteristics, applications, and history of the plants.
