About this book

Alpine Beauty explores the wildflowers and flowering shrubs commonly found in the subalpine and alpine environments in the Rocky Mountains of western Canada. Due to harsh weather conditions, the plants that exist at higher elevations are generally different than those at lower elevations. In this environment, low shrub and herb communities become the rule.
