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.
There’s no reason to forsake lilies and petunias. But after reading Bizarre Botanicals, gardeners will want to take a walk on the weird side and try a few of these peculiar plants for themselves.
"If you seek entertainment while your garden sleeps, give Bizarre Botanicals a whirl."
“For the gardener who wants to stretch beyond the everyday into the realm of… wicked fun.”

If you Love Bizzare Plants you will Love this book! Bizarre Botanicals is a great book with alot of information on just that Bizarre plants. I work with plants such as the ones in this book every day on my new job, and for alot of information i have began refering to this book as a learning tool. When visitor's and customers come up to me and ask a question if i dont know the answer i refer to the book. Dr. Mellichamp and Mrs.Gross have included wonderful pictures of the plants as well. Together they have added a humoress remarks to how some of the plants react and do what they do. As many of these plants are still an on going study to figure out why they move, or how they digest insects. Or in the case of a Titan Arum only flower and last for 12 hours. This books is just the begining of information on some of the worlds bizzare plants, but its a step in the right direction if you want to learn more about these wonderful, wacky, and bizarre plants .Was this review helpful?
