Overview

This spectacular and informative guide features 278 wildflowers found in the meadows, woods, dunes, shores, and wetlands of Michigan. Each stunning photograph is coupled with a detailed plant description, including scientific and family names, habitat, growing season, and protected status. Michigan Wildflowers also features a wildflower quiz and a guide to eight of Michigan's most accessible and diverse wildflower trails, including Fernwood, Grass River Natural Area, and the Ninga Aki Pathway. Invaluable to nature lovers, this beautiful and practical book is essential for anyone who enjoys the wealth of wildflowers Michigan has to offer. At the beginning of Michigan Wildflowers in Color, the author has illustrated textual terms such as 'stipules' or 'basal leaves' with a collection of line drawings. The plant descriptions include location, seasonal display, height, and information on whether the flower is protected and should not be picked or moved. The flower photographs are grouped by color for ease of location and then listed in the order in which they appear during the growing season. There are generally six photographs to a page, with the text on the facing page. There is a quiz at the back of the book to test your 'flower power, plus an 'Observer's List' to keep track of the flowers you do find. Also, the author has also mapped out eight wildflower trails in various Michigan habitats, plus the seasonal species of flowers that can be found there.

Meet the Author

Author and photographer, Harry C. Lund, and his wife, Eloise E. Lund, have spent many years hiking through bogs, woodlands, meadows, and sand dunes in Michigan s Upper and Lower Peninsulas and its off-shore islands locating and photographing wildflowers. It is their hope that by sharing these pictures in a book with an easy-to-read format, they can encourage more people to become interested in and willing to protect one of Michigan s most beautiful, and perhaps most neglected, natural resources.

This a great reference book. It's arranged by the color of the flower. We keep this book in the car for quick reference.
