Plants on the Move

By: Émilie Vast

Spinning, flying, crawling, exploding! These plants have places to go.

When you think of a plant, you don't think of how it moves. But the feathery seeds of the dandelion fly to other gardens, strawberry tendrils creep, and maple seeds spin! Nature is always in motion. 

Fourteen plant journeys are chronicled and more than sixty species highlighted in Émilie Vast's fantastical art. 

Maximum quantity available reached.
