Description

Exquisite botanical artworks from Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, feature in this luxurious gift book, encased in a collector’s box containing 40 frameable art prints.

Rare Plants explores what makes the world’s most uncommon plants so exceptional, and by what means they have become so scarce. These plants have drawn the fascination of plant hunters, botanists, scientists and gardeners for centuries – and in a race against time to conserve the world’s plant biodiversity, organizations such as the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, are deploying incredible science to save and document them.

Forty rare and endangered species are explored through images sourced from the archives at Kew accompanied by illuminating and authoritative text by Ed Ikin, deputy director of Kew’s wild botanic garden at Wakehurst.

Capturing the rarity and beauty of the natural world, Rare Plants is a gorgeous gift for any plant lover.
