It is undeniable that carnivorous plants capture our imaginations. In fact, there is something almost mythic about these exotic garden delights that survive partly by trapping and consuming insects and other living prey. Even the emphatically rational Charles Darwin could not resist their thrall, devoting an entire book to these sly devourers. In more recent years, Peter D'Amato's 1998 The Savage Garden became the bestselling gardener's guide on this magnetic topic. Now this National Horticultural Society Book Award winner arrives in a welcome revised edition, opening our eyes anew to houseplants capable (and apparently willing) to lure, capture and eat an entire rat. Think of it as a gorgeously disguised little house of insect horrors.
