Wildflowers of Southwest Florida: Packed with vivid color photographs, novice and expert wildflower enthusiasts can use this handy field guide to identify 91 common and rare wildflower species found on the southwest Florida mainland, including Big Cypress National Preserve, Fakahatchee Strand State Preserve, Collier-Seminole State Park, Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary, CREW Marsh, and the surrounding area.
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.
