A field guide to the Rockies' exquisite wildflowers.
The Rocky Mountains are natural botanical gardens of enormous diversity and interest. Wildflowers of the Rocky Mountains is a user-friendly field guide that features wildflowers from one end of the mountain chain to the other-from northern British Columbia to New Mexico. Each detailed description of the 350 species of plants has a full-color photograph for easy identification.
Plants are grouped into six sections, according to flower color: white; yellow and cream; green; pink; red, orange, and brown; and purple and blue.
Included are all the most common species likely to be encountered along the roadsides and hiking trails in the Rockies.
Also featured are some rare and shy beauties found in more remote areas.
