The botanical paradise of the hothouse is filled with exuberant foliage, unusual succulents and striking cacti, while leafy ferns and towering palms jostle for the light. The Tropical Hothouse describes over 50 tropical plants, telling the intriguing stories of their origins and compelling features. Sourced exclusively from Kew's archives; each illustration presses out of the page, transforming your book into a work of art, and transporting this world of extraordinary plants into your hands and home.
