Wicked Plants By Amy Stewart. An entertaining one-of-akind A-Z guide of plants that kill, maim, intoxicate, and otherwise offend. You’ll learn which plants to avoid (like exploding shrubs), which plants make themselves exceedingly unwelcome (like the vine that ate the South), and which ones have been killing for centuries (like the weed that killed Abraham Lincoln's mother). This informative book is illustrated with 40 menacing botanical etchings. Hardcover, 256 pages.
