Overview

Ohio University Press is pleased to announce the publication of another beautifully illustrated reference work by June Carver Roberts. On the publication of her first botanical guide, Born in Spring: A Collection of Spring Wildflowers (Ohio University Press, 1976), Roberts’ work was enthusiastically received:

“Roberts combines outstanding artistic talent, a love of wildflowers, and an engaging writing style to produce a uniquely charming volume on spring wildflowers. It attracts the eye, and it provides an engrossing series of vignettes of ninety-one species, guaranteed to lift the spirits when the now is deepest and the thermometer lowest.” — Choice

In this new study of wild plants, Roberts depicts over 250 plants and describes their methods of survival over the winter. She knows her habitat, flower design, pollinators, style of fruiting, and seed or spore dispersal. The drawings and paintings were done from living plants, in minute detail, and with botanical accuracy. Robert’s collection of winter plants is an artistic tribute to the quiet beauty of the woodlands of Northeastern United States.

Artist and author June Roberts has a special interest in identifying and preserving rare and endangered native plants. She has won many awards, including the John Marin Award, for her drawings and watercolors, and has pieces in the permanent collection of the Butler Art Institute, the Akron Art Institute, and the Huntington Museum.
