About this title


This miniature folio is based upon the well-known portfolio set North American Wild Flowers, originally published by the Smithsonian Institute. The 400 flowers in the collection depict the huge variety of native wildflowers to be found in North America from the familiar to the rare.


Using the famous full-color paintings of Mary Vaux Walcott as illustrations, this tiny gem of a book depicts 400 wildflowers and plants from all over the country. Some were chosen for their beauty or rareness, others because they are old (and familiar) friends. Either way, Walcott's exquisite paintings capture the delicacy and diversity of America's flowering plants. Wildflowers of America also provides an index with distinguishing characteristics to aid in identification, making this the perfect pocket companion for hikes and nature walks.
