Your Quick Guide to Identifying Wildflowers
Beautiful, colorful wildflowers might catch your eye at the cabin, in the park, or on a hike. Now you can identify your favorites by name. When you're out and about, keep Wildflowers of the South & Southeast close at hand. Written by acclaimed nature author Jaret C. Daniels, this convenient guide showcases more than 150 species of wildflowers found in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia.
Designed for ease of use, the tabbed booklet is organized by color for simple identification. Do you see a purple flower and don't know what it is? Open the "Blue to Purple" tab, and view photographs of just a few wildflowers at a time. The detailed pictures with key markings help to ensure positive ID for even casual observers.
The pocket-sized format is much easier to use than laminated foldouts, and the tear-resistant pages help to make the booklet durable. So bring this lightweight quick guide along on your next hike, camping trip, or neighborhood walk, and improve your identification skills with every wildflower sighting.
