Their biological particularities have enabled plants to conquer all natural environments of planet earth; from dry desert lands (cactus and acacia), ice cold (algae), marshes (carnivorous plants) to the concrete in the hearts of our cities (tree of heaven) and wastes (elder). To succeed this extraordinary colonization, the lords of green have developed many strategies that could be qualified as “vegetal genius”. Perhaps the foremost of them all, is to have seduced us, the human race. Today we bring plant life into our cities of concrete and asphalt, and some humans have even foreseen the creation of cities entirely made of plants.
