About this book

This is an A-Z of places associated with plants, plant hunters from yesterday and today, and from across the world. It takes an in-depth look at the plants themselves: where they came from, who discovered them and how they came to be named as they are. It also includes stories about plant explorers and their often dangerous journeys, and is illustrated throughout with archive pictures of plants and their discoverers.

Published in partnership with Hillier.
