Product Description

"Penny looks at the cycle of flowering, pollination, seed production, germination, growth, and a return to flowering that plants use to reproduce, revealing the fascinatingly diverse and often strange ways in which different plants meet each of these requirements. Chapters on parasitic and carnivorous plants add to the oddities. Entries under 'Unusual Plants' include the rafflesia, which produces a huge red flower over three feet across, and an orchid whose flowers mimic the fly that pollinates it." - Lisa Wu Stowe, School Library Journal.

For ages 8 to 11.
