“An imaginative guide to bringing the delights of the garden indoors.” —Publishers Weekly

The Unexpected Houseplant, by renowned plant authority Tovah Martin, offers a revolutionary approach to houseplants. Instead of the typical varieties, Martin suggests hundreds of creative choices, arranged by season—brilliant spring bulbs, lush perennials brought in from the garden, quirky succulents, and flowering vines and small trees.

Along with loads of visual inspiration, you’ll learn how to make unusual selections, where to best position plants in the home, and valuable tips on watering, feeding, and pruning.

“Will boost the confidence of even the most black-thumbed houseplant owner. Martin’s can-do enthusiasm is infectious.” —Booklist

“This isn’t just another book on houseplants; it’s an invitation to adventure.” —Horticulture
