A real plus to add to your reference library. I didn't realize the numbers and varieties of wildflowers and ferns in kentucky and the surrounding states. Will use as a guide to naturalize my landscape.

While the title indicates that this book may have a narrow scope in its subject matter, most gardeners throughout the mid-south and the mid-west will find it helpful and informative.

Excellent photographs identify many species found in eastern North America. Arranged in sections by season and color, the guide is easy to read and useful to both the novice and experienced gardener or nature enthusiast.

From the rare and delicate native orchids, to the common roadside Black-eyed Susans, this book is a great companion to toss in a backpack or glovebox. There is even a section on native ferns and related species.

Well researched and photographed, it is a good choice to add to any library.
