Extreme PlantsBook - 2015
The Australian Christmas tree has lovely orange flowers, but don't be fooled by its pretty exterior. Once fully grown, this tree reaches its roots hundreds of feet out to grab surrounding plants' roots. It then takes the water and nutrients that plant needs to grow! It's not the only deadly plant. From lilies' ability to kill cats to the huge thorns of the whistling thorn acacia, killer plants are found all over the world. Full-color photographs and detailed, understandable text present the oddities of these extreme plants to readers. They'll never look at a garden the same way again!
