A large format, fully illustrated, comprehensive guide to growing wildflowers in every region of North America, written by one of the country's leading botanists.

"...packs a great deal of information that can be used by wildflower gardeners from coast to coast. Choosing 101 natives from the thousands that occur in North America was not aneasy task, and the author is to be congratulated for selecting so wisely. Tips on propagation are simple, to the point, and conservation conscious. Highly recommended!"
