Wildflowers of Central Texas: People exploring nature in Central Texas can use this handy photographic field guide to identify 88 common native wildflower species. The flowers in the guide are grouped by color to make identification as easy as possible, and the accompanying text indicates size, bloom period, and other characteristics of each plant.
The guide’s six double-sided panels fold up into a packet narrow enough to fit in a back pocket yet sturdy enough to stand up under repeated use. Lamination has also made the guide waterproof.
The plants identified in Central Texas Wildflowers grow in a large area that includes San Antonio, New Braunfels, San Marcos, Austin, Round Rock, Georgetown, Temple, Waco, Bastrop, Smithville, Brenham, College Station, Johnson City, Fredericksburg, Llano, Marble Falls, Burnet, Mason, and many other nearby places.
