Overview

For more than two decades the first edition of Northland Wildflowers has been the standard guide to wildflowers of the Upper Midwest and Canada, and has become an indispensable reference. Now, a substantial revision presents more than three hundred species of commonly found wildflowers, all stunningly captured in new full-color images by photographer John Gregor.

The most comprehensive and informative book on this subject, Northland Wildflowers is destined also to be regarded as the most beautiful. Its six sections are divided by the color of bloom, making it the ideal guide for the gardener, the hiker, and the roadside traveler. Each entry is highlighted with a photograph and description of the species and its habitat and a mention of related species. A thorough bibliography, glossary, and index make this an essential resource.

In addition to information on how to identify wildflower species, Northland Wildflowers recommends the best seasons for viewing each variety and suggest how to plant, grow, and preserve wildflowers. Notes on Ojibwe medicinal and culinary uses of flowers, such as wintergreen and milkweed, as well as a look at which plants are immigrants from Europe, such as the sow thistle and the dandelion, will fascinate all.

This spectacularly illustrated new edition of Northland Wildflowers is sure to become the key guide for gardeners and nature lovers of the North.

    Great content worst manufacturing ever

    Do not order this under any circumstances, while the content is good it redefines cheaply made and takes it to a whole new level. Don't expect it to last more then about 3 page turns, because any bit of the binding which isn't broken when you recieve it will be then.
