You may be familiar with the Venus flytrap, but did you know that some pitcher plants can, and do, digest an entire rat? Or that there are several hundred species of carnivorous plants on our planet?

Beautiful, unusual, and surprisingly easy to grow, flesh-eating plants thrive everywhere from windowsills to outdoor container gardens, in a wide variety of climates.

The Savage Garden is the most comprehensive guide to these fascinating oddities, gloriously illustrated with more than 200 color photos.

Fully revised with the latest developments in the carnivorous plant world. Whether you’re a beginner with your first flytrap or an expert looking for the latest exotic specimen, this classic book has everything you need to grow your very own little garden of horrors.
