"Wilbur and Marion Duncan, the leading experts on the flora of the southeastern United States, have developed a useful new guide to identify wildflowers found east of the Mississippi. Richly illustrated with over 600 color photographs, Wildflowers of the Eastern United States describes more than 1,100 eastern species from Maine to northern Florida, including forbs, grasses, rushes, and sedges. More than 700 of these species also are found west of the Mississippi." "Wildflowers of the Eastern United States describes range, blooming season, and typical habitat for each species and includes a list of plants with unusual traits as a further aid to identification. The succinct descriptions together with color photographs provide the most definitive, recognizable characteristics necessary for positive identification."--Jacket
