For nature lovers, garden enthusiasts, and coloring book addicts who think they’ve seen it all, a coloring book with a dark side. Breathtakingly beautiful plants that maim, intoxicate, inflict pain, and even murder.

In this delightfully devilish coloring book, Amy Stewart and Briony Morrow-Cribbs bring coloring enthusiasts the forty most menacing botanical atrocities from their New York Times bestseller Wicked Plants. Morrow-Cribbs’s exquisite etchings are now finely rendered coloring-book art and are paired with details from the original book. Drawing on history, medicine, science, and legend—and written with Stewart’s trademark wit—each wonderfully creepy spread offers a fascinating portrait of the evildoers of the plant world, from the vine that ate the South (kudzu) to the weed that killed Lincoln’s mother (white snakeroot), to the world’s deadliest seed (rosary pea).

Check out the original Wicked Plants book by Amy Stewart.
