Plant experts Larry Mellichamp and Paula Gross take readers on a curious botanical journey of weirdly wonderful plants. Bizarre Botanicals features over 75 astonishing plants that have extraordinary abilities: 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. A difficulty scale alerts gardeners to how easy (or difficult) it is to grow the plant at home.
