Deceptive Beauties: The World of Wild Orchids

Giving an orchid gift can be tough at a time of year when that gift might freeze its blooms off. Instead, consider this gorgeous orchid book that’s getting lots of buzz — Deceptive Beauties: The World of Wild Orchids. Veteran National Geographic photographer and biologist Christian Ziegler explores orchid adaptions, diversity, and how orchids deceive their pollinators. Amazing photography reveals orchids in their native habitats, as well as butterflies, hummingbirds, and orchid bees. This stunning book also highlights how these captivating flowers survive in a variety of harsh environments. It makes a great holiday gift, and it’s much easier to wrap than a Dendrobium.
