Throughout this botanical journey, she reveals that the science behind these intelligent plants how they evolved, how they survive, how they heal is even more awe inspiring than their fleeting beauty. Russell helps us imagine what a field of snapdragons looks like to a honeybee, and she introduces us to flowers that regulate their own temperature, attract pollinating bats, even smell like a rotting corpse.
