About this title

Synopsis:

This exquisitely illustrated volume provides an in-depth look at spring-blooming wildflowers of the Northeast, from old favorites to lesser-known species. Featuring more than 500 full-color photos in a stunning large-sized format, the book delves deep into the life histories, lore, and cultural uses of more than 35 plant species. The rich narrative covers topics such as the naming of wildflowers; the reasons for taxonomic changes; pollination of flowers and dispersal of seeds; uses by Native Americans; related species in other parts of the world; herbivores, plant pathogens, and pests; medicinal uses; and wildflower references in history, literature, and art. The photos capture the beauty of these plants and also illustrate the concepts discussed in the text.

From the Back Cover:

"This is a wonderful collection of essays on some of our favorite early spring wildflowers, taking readers way beyond the typical coverage of identity, general habitat, and range. Spring Wildflowers of the Northeast is an excellent, unique, and exceptionally well-illustrated book, a wonderful addition to our literature on wildflowers."--Garrett E. Crow, professor emeritus, University of New Hampshire
