Garden from the couch: Wicked Plants, continued
A couple of weeks ago, I wrote here on Garden Variety about a fascinating new book by Amy Stewart titled, Wicked Plants: The weed that killed Lincoln's mother and other botanical atrocities.
It is a fun read and the contest I ran offering five free books from the publisher was a big hit.
Amy just got back from a month-long book tour, and her fans filled her in on more wicked plants. She writes about what she learned on her blog, Garden Rant.
Read about the plant that can blind you.... Ok maybe not completely blind...and the unpronounceable disease you can get from rose thorns.
