Synopses & Reviews
Book News Annotation:
The mid-Atlantic region is home to hundreds of wildflower species; this guide focuses on those in specific parks, trails, riverbanks, marshes and other natural areas in Washington, Baltimore, and outward to the Chesapeake Bay's Eastern Shore and the Blue Ridge Mountains. The authors (a botanist, a science writer, and a biology teacher) list flowers by location, species, and blooming date, with line drawings and detailed directions.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
A guide to the locations, habitats and blooming periods of the many species of wildflower that grow in and around the Washington and Baltimore area. The book focuses on the more showy native and naturalized herbaceous plants of woods, fields, wetlands and parks.
The heart of the book presents detailed information on specific parks, trails, riverbanks, marshes, and other natural areas where wildflowers thrive. Detailed maps of the locations and directions show readers how to get to each site. A final section lists some 450 wildflower species found in the region, noting each flower's blooming period, its preferred habitat, the locations where it can be found, and whether it is common, uncommon, or rare.
