With page after page of breathtaking photographs, this highly praised volume is a veritable bouquet of hundreds of America's favorite wildflowers, arranged by region. In the text Lady Bird Johnson, in collaboration with an eminent horticulturist, makes a compelling argument for the preservation and proliferation of the natural beauty of our country's native flora. Since her childhood Mrs. Johnson has loved wildflowers, and on her seventieth birthday she founded a research center, now known as the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, with the aim of encouraging the use of more native plants and flowers in gardens and landscaping. This book includes a foreword by Mrs. Johnson, as well as up-to-date information about the Center.
The book also deals with such practical matters as how to establish your own wildflower meadow and where to get the seeds if you need them. Wildflowers Across America is an invaluable guide to one of our country's most varied and lovely resources, written by one of her most gracious ladies.

Review:

Wildflowers Across America is a serious treatise on the status of plants native to North America. It's also a beautifully illustrated coffee-table book with hundreds of gorgeous photographs that will convince you that no fancy cultivar could match the glowing beauty of a field of lupinus texensis, more commonly known as Texas bluebonnets. Lady Bird Johnson, former first lady and the most visible proponent of indigenous botany, and well-known horticulturist Carlton B. Lees take turns describing their adventures with wildflowers, the history of plant exploration, regional plants, and the landscape beautification movement that Mrs. Johnson popularized and still vigorously supports. The lovely regional portfolio in the middle of the book is particularly interesting.

From the Publisher:

A veritable bouquet of hundreds of America's favorite wildflowers.
