The southeastern flora derives especial complexity from the intrusion of tropical elements in the extreme south and the extension of northern temperate plants down the mountain ranges. There are more wild flowers in any part of the country than most persons who live there realize. About six thousand kinds--species--of flowering plants grow in the southeastern regions of the United States. This formidable figure, to be sure includes trees and shrubs, grasses and sedges and rushes, as well as the herbaceous flowering plants that are "wild flowers" to most of us. But even if we subtract the woody, grassy, and sedgy flowering plants, we are still faced with more than three thousand different wild flowers in this one part of the country.
