From salty seacoast to mountain forest, North Carolina is home to a colorful assortment of wildflowers. Look carefully and you'll find everything from tough, cheery dandelions to dainty spider lilies, from impressive dogwoods to shy wild ginger. In North Carolina Wildflowers, you'll learn fascinating facts about even the most common plants. For example, did you know that... Early settlers used the fluffy seeds of the butterflyweed to stuff their pillows. The sensitive spiderwort can warn people about the presence of dangerous pollution. Indians made bread and pancakes from the pollen of the cattail. The May-apple root is used to make medicine that removes warts. The state flower of North Carolina isn't really a flower at all. North Carolina Wildflowers is one of a series of state wildflower guides for children. Other books in the series feature Arizona, California, Minnesota, Montana, Oregon, and Texas. Through them, you'll learn to appreciate the blossoms that decorate your favorite corner of the world.
