  • 370 species accounts that include the plant's scientific and common names, a description of its appearance, and its range, habitat, and blooming season.
  • Descriptions of 73 wildflower families, from Acanthaceae to Zygophyllaceae.
  • Indexes to help you identify flowers by their Latin name and common name.
  • A guide to taxonomic updates in this edition.
  • A map, glossary, illustrated glossary, and bibliography for further reading.

Lady Bird Johnson, author of the first edition's foreword, says of this new edition of Texas Wildflowers, "How delighted I am the University of Texas Press and the Wildflower Center are preserving Campbell and Lynn Loughmiller's legacy by revising and updating this beautiful and invaluable book about Texas wildflowers!
