Overview

Though many may not realize it, Texas is home to some of the rarest orchid species in the world.From the Big Thicket to the Big Bend, from the Panhandle to the coastal plain, Field Guide to the Wild Orchids of Texas is the first native orchid field guide to cover each of the Lone Star State's eco-regions.
 
This valuable and comprehensive resource for the orchid taxonomist, dedicated enthusiast, or casual hiker and lover of the outdoors covers more than 50 species and orchid varieties, several of which are new to Texas and, in some cases, even brand-new to the orchid world. It also includes numerous color and growth forms.
 
This handy guide includes all the essential tools—field photographs, diagnostic line drawings, and useful reference keys—to quickly and easily identify an orchid discovered in the wild. A checklist of the state's wild orchids and charts listing optimal flowering times and distribution by region make this guide user-friendly year-round. In addition to the many insider orchid-hunting tips, botanist Paul Martin Brown recommends trip itineraries offering the fullest viewing of native orchids at their peak seasons.
