About this book

Celebrate the weird, wacky, and wonderful world of plants with a book that revels in the diversity of the botanical world.

Plants are truly awe-inspiring. They can be vast, minute, smelly, or spectacularly ugly. Some look remarkably like animals, others are carnivorous, some grow from the ground, some live in water, while others grow parasitically – taking another plant as its host and their nutrients for itself. With Hortus Curious you can explore the most peculiar and fascinating plants on the planet, and celebrate them in all their diverse splendour.

Split into five chapters, Michael Perry explores, in an authoritative yet quirky way, exactly what makes each plant special. With exquisitely detailed illustrations, this is an informative, humorous, and beautiful gift for all those who love plants, delivering a different way to view the plant world and enjoy it for its bonkers and bizarre.
