Many gardeners are vaguely aware of the 'greats' of plant exploration, such as E H Wilson, George Forrest or John Tradescant. Fewer may know the names of today's plant explorers or recognize the makings of a new golden age of plant discovery. While providing interesting details on the lives and careers of these new explorers, the real focus of the book is on the plants themselves. Ward asked each of the hunters to choose the very best treasures from their years of collecting, and has illustrated these with stunning photographs.
