I spotted this book at the Cleveland Botanical Gardens and was interested. I was basically expecting a sort of photo tour of some weird plants. And I did get that. The photography was especially beautiful. I was surprised to discover that it's actually pitched towards the home gardener interested in growing these strange plants themselves. As such, virtually everything in here is commercially available, if difficult to grow. I have no intention of growing anything, because I have the exact opposite of a green thumb, but I did think it was cool that it's a how-to instead of just gawking.
