    Great guide for flowers!

    Flowers were very easy to match from photo's to descriptions. Have used it extensively for this years flower season.

    Method for identifying trees was not as easy and were harder to figure out. Did not make for quick identification of trees (~5 minutes per tree). Even so, could correctly follow method for most trees.

    good for a novice

    This is my first exploration into wild plants, and I think that the organization of the information in this book is great. Each plant blurb has an image of Texas with the region that the plant grows in shaded in, very convenient. The flowers are organized by color, which makes identification a snap if the plant you're looking at is in bloom. Best of all every single plant has a color photograph, and all of these images are conveniently grouped together in several pages in the middle of the book. This way, if you're looking at an unknown plant, you can scan through all the pictures much more quickly than if you had to flip through the whole book.

    I guess the book never advertised that it would have this, but my one gripe is that there aren't enough plain old, ugly old, flowerless weeds for me. Maybe that's a job for a separate field guide.

    I've identified several plants in my own backyard using this book. It's been fun. I've also paired it with a book that goes into detail on the uses of various wild plants in Texas.
