Description
In this surprising little garden guide, plant experts Larry Mellichamp and Paula Gross take readers on a curious botanical journey of weirdly wonderful plants like Voodoo Lily, Goldfish and Unicorn plants, Medusa Orchid, and Bat-Faced Cuphea that can be grown at home. These 75 plants have extraordinary properties—from pyrotechnic spores that can burst into flame when ignited, to flowers that lure insects to their deaths. Each plant profile includes essential care and cultivation information, while a difficulty scale alerts gardeners to how easy—or challenging—it is to grow the plant at home.

"An informative and visually arresting book devoted to a dizzying array of plants not frequently found in typical American gardens. Perfect for gardeners of all levels who wish to cultivate out-of-the-ordinary plants and for armchair gardeners interested in thumbing through photographs of unusual botanicals."—Library Journal
