A tree that sheds poison daggers; a glistening red seed that
stops the heart; a shrub that causes paralysis; a climbing
plant that strangles; and a leaf that triggered a war.
Bestselling author Amy Stewart takes on two hundred of
Mother Natures most appalling creations in an A to Z of
plants that kill, maim, intoxicate and otherwise offend.
Menacing botanical illustrations render a ghastly portrait
of evildoers that may be lurking in your back (or front)
garden. Drawing on history, medicine, science and legend,
this compendium of bloodcurdling botany will entertain,
enlighten and alarm even the most intrepid gardeners and
nature lovers.
