Bloedel Reserve Lecture: Wicked Plants by Author Amy Stewart
In her New York Times bestseller Wicked Plants: The Weed That Killed Lincoln's Mother and Other Botanical Atrocities, Amy Stewart takes on nature's most appalling creations. It's an A to Z of plants that kill, maim, intoxicate, and otherwise offend. Drawing on history, medicine, science, and legend, Stewart presents tales of bloodcurdling botany that will entertain, alarm, and enlighten even the most intrepid gardeners and nature lovers.
Find out which plant killed Abraham Lincoln's mother, which shrub ignited a global war, and what plant has killed 90 million people. From strychnine to castor bean, from poison sumac to monkshood, from carnivorous plants to weeds that spontaneously combust, Stewart introduces an unforgettable cast of characters and tells their tales with her own wicked sense of humor.
Amy is the author of several best-selling books including Flower Confidential, an expose of the commercial flower trade, The Earth Moved, all about earthworms, and From the Ground Up, a touching personal memoir of her very first garden. She also contributes to a sassy, highly opinionated blog, Garden Rant.
