Wicked Plants: The Weed That Killed Lincolns Mother and Other Botanical Atrocities
Amy Stewart,
English | 2009 | ISBN: 1565126831 | MOBI | 223 pages | 4.12 MB

A tree that sheds poison daggers; a glistening red seed that stops the heart; a shrub that causes paralysis; a vine that strangles; and a leaf that triggered a war. In Wicked Plants, Stewart takes on over two hundred of Mother Natures most appalling creations. Its an A to Z of plants that kill, maim, intoxicate, and otherwise offend. Youll 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 Lincolns mother).
Menacing botanical illustrations and splendidly ghastly drawings create a fascinating portrait of the evildoers that may be lurking in your own backyard. Drawing on history, medicine, science, and legend, this compendium of bloodcurdling botany will entertain, alarm, and enlighten even the most intrepid gardeners and nature lovers.
