This is perhaps the best of many field guides covering this region. Featuring 446 excellent color photographs (located with the text) and mentioning as similar to those illustrated are another 800 or so species for a total coverage of over 1,200 species. The start of each family section includes line drawings of some of the species showing important features. The text includes the usual description, bloom season, range, habitat and additionally includes information such as medical uses and lore and how the species was named.

because this book is set up with thumbnails according to bloom color, you'll ID your flower easier and faster (and with more info) than any other reference i've used. not sure why they refer to line drawings as there are all but NONE in it-just excellent color photos. taxonomic keys are included for each genus as well. order a second copy at the same time as a gift for a friend and get free shipping even!
