Wild plants may be as simple as a weedy patch in a garden or as complex as native forest in a bushy gully. A large proportion of Auckland’s living landscape is made up of urban plants growing without intentional human aid. Every kind of plant is different, in its form, its requirements and tolerances, its life history and its influence on other plants. 

In words, and in exquisite line drawings and colour photographs, this fascinating and approachable book by an expert in the field tells the story of 322 species that grow wild in New Zealand’s largest city.
