“Master gardener and historian Amy Stewart sheds sunlight on the darkest, deadliest (but seemingly innocuous) flora around the world. You never know what might be growing in your neighbor's yard!”
-- Emily Stavrou, Schuler Books & Music, Grand Rapids, MI

Stewart takes on more than 200 of Mother Nature's most appalling creations and offers this A-to-Z compendium of plants that kill, maim, intoxicate, and otherwise offend.
