This guide provides detailed information on 535 species of herbaceous plants, vines, and shrubs that inhabit the great floristic provinces of the Lower Mississippi Valley, Gulf and Atlantic Coastal States. Entries are arranged alphabetically by family and scientific name, and are accompanied by a vivid color photograph of the wildflower in its natural setting and a precise description of the species, including its range and blooming time.
Some entries describe modern and historical applications for the plants such as use by Native Americans for food or medicine and mention closely related species to prevent confusion in identification. The volume contains a simplified glossary and a series of line drawings explain essential botanical terms. Dichotomous keys facilitate step-by-step identification methods.
