Incorporating 180 images of over 150 species taken over the past two decades by acclaimed photographers Greg Bourke and Richard Nunn, this visually striking book is the first work dedicated to highlighting the beauty of Australian carnivorous plants in the wild through high quality photographs.


The selection of breathtaking images featured in this lavishly illustrated work was carefully chosen to highlight the extraordinary diversity of carnivorous plants found in Australia, an assemblage that is greater than on all other continents on Earth. The spectacular images and detailed captions, written in accessible English, offer a uniquely informative portrait of some of the Southern Hemisphere’s most extraordinary and beautiful plants. It is a work that will fascinate amateur nature enthusiasts and specialist botanists alike.

An orchid plant may arrive in bud, in bloom or in various stages of in-spike development. A plant in-spike can take anywhere from 1 week to 2 months before flowers begin to open. We are one of the few nurseries to ship orchids in spike or bloom. Most of the time our carefully wrapped orchids in-spike or in-bloom arrive in good condition. However, due to conditions beyond our control, we cannot guarantee that all flower spikes, flowers, or buds will arrive in perfect condition.

An orchid will arrive while it is not currently spiking or blooming due to being either before or after its bloom season. Check the "Bloom Season" information on the product page to see when the plant is expected to spike and flower. Many orchid lovers and hobbyists prefer plants that are not in-spike in order to watch the first stages of the spike emerging all the way through to the reward of the bloom! If you are sending a plant as a gift, you generally want to send the plant in-spike unless the gift receiver would prefer otherwise.
