More than 90 brilliant photos, grouped by color, make this your go-to guide for nature walks and choosing native species for your own garden.
This six-panel, laminated guide is your key to understanding when flowers bloom, which are native to the mid-Atlantic region, and where you may find each one.
Loaded with wildflowers that thrive in city parks, on mountainsides, in urban and suburban gardens, in forests and pine barrens, and in fertile wetlands, this guide provides a list of characteristics for each flower—from petal arrangement to height—to help you tell one flower from another.
Best of all, you’ll learn which flowers are native to the area, to strengthen your garden’s offerings for birds, bees, and butterflies.
