Katia Astafieff tells stories of plants that are also stories of seekers of green gold, heroes of bygone eras, nomads of knowledge: ginseng, redwood, hevea, tobacco, strawberries, rhubarb, peony, tea, kiwi, Indonesian rafflesia. You think rhubarb has always grown in our gardens? Wrong! It comes from the heart of China and Tibet, discovered by Simon Pallas, sent by Empress Catherine II to explore the remotest corners of Russia.
