A centuries-old saying goes, "Great oaks from little acorns grow." But as Seeing Seeds reveals, there is much more to a seed than the plant it will someday become: seeds, seedheads, pods, and fruits have their own astounding beauty that rivals, and sometimes even surpasses, the beauty of flowers. In these stunning pages you'll gain an understanding of how seeds are formed and dispersed, why they look the way they do, and how they fit into the environment. Seeing Seeds will take you to strange and wonderful places. When you return, it's safe to say that you'll never look at a seed the same way again.
A fascinating exploration of seeds, seedheads, pods, and fruits featuring Robery Llewellyn's stunning photography and Teri Dunn Chace's remarkable horticultural insights.
