As children we explored the nooks and crannies of our yards, neighborhoods, and parks. This book describes 100 of the most familiar friends of our childhood's natural surroundings. Every flower has its own full-color plate and description to help with identification. The natural history of the plant, its relationship to man, and planting information is explored. Also includes a special section on designing a garden to attract butterflies and hummingbirds. An indispensable guide to appreciating the natural world around your home.
