Vividly illustrated with hundreds of captioned color photos against white backgrounds, this oversized book is like a natural history museum between two covers. From simple, primitive species like liverworts and mosses to towering conifers and lush flowering plants, this is a dazzling overview of the diverse flora found all over the world, compiled by experts in the field. The book also includes 11 × 14inch color prints of four particularly beautiful specimens—the Madonna lily, blue plantation lily, monk's hood cactus, and Chinese hibiscus—trimmed with colorful borders and suitable for framing.
