About this book

Bizarre Botanicals takes readers on a curious botanical journey of weirdly wonderful plants that can be grown at home. It features over 75 astonishing plants that have extraordinary abilities, including those with pyrotechnic spores that can burst into flame when ignited or flowers that lure insects to their deaths. Each plant profile includes essential care and cultivation information, and a difficulty scale alerts gardeners to how easy or difficult it is to grow the plant at home.
