New York Times Bestseller.

For over a century hybridizers, geneticists, farmers, and florists have worked to invent, manufacture and sell flowers that are bigger, brighter, and sturdier than anything nature provides. What has been gained - and what has been lost - in tinkering with Mother Nature? Amy Stewart travels the globe to take us inside this dazzling world, and discovers the startling intersection of nature and technology, sentiment and commerce.

"As candid as she is circumspect, Stewart combines a romantic's idealism with a journalist's objectivity in this tantalizing exposé." - Booklist
