"The Private Life of Plants", David Attenborough. The book is a companion to
the video of the same name, which has been mentioned here before as Wilbert and
Jim Simon were involved in the Amorphophallus titanum portion.

I enjoyed both the video and the book a lot; I've had the book for years, but
only acquired the video last year. Although many of Attenborough's videos,
including a number of the "Life" series, are available in about every format
and region, this one was only available on VHS here in the US. If you have a
way to play non-US region DVDs, though, you can order it on DVD from the UK for
about $30 US.
