  Garden Bookworm editor's notes:  
From the back cover

Why is rhubarb related to buckwheat, yet the cereal oats, barley, rye and wehat are in quite a different family?

How to Identify Flowering Plant Families is sponsored by the Rare Plant Group of the Garden Club of America, who recognized the need for a flowering plant family identification book and encouraged John Philip Baumgardt to undertake the writing of it. This book leads the reader through analyses of flower structure, floral diagrams, and floral formulae to enable him or her to place a plant in its correct familial relationship. Gardeners, horticulturists, and students alike will find this book invaluable as a guide to identifying the plants found in field and garden.
