Plants on the Move

by Émilie Vast

A gorgeous, lyrical introduction to the idea that plants aren’t as stationary as you might think. Watch out for those buttercup creepers!

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. There are many different ways plants move, not only as they grow, but in their quest to reproduce: falling, clinging, floating, burrowing–even exploding!

Fourteen plant journeys are chronicled in Plants on the Move, but more than sixty species are highlighed in Émilie Vast’s fantastic and unique art style. Learn the scientific names for the different ways plants move.


Illustrator, author and visual artist Émilie Vast plays with pure lines, solid color and contrast. Inspired by the graphic arts of the past, in love with nature, she stages plants and animals, like so many characters coming to tell their stories in stylized illustrations.
