  Garden Bookworm editor's notes:  
Spring is a very special time in the Desert Southwest. An astonishing variety of wildflowers, nurtured by the winter rains, can bloom in wondrous profusion and carpet the desert floor and mountainside slopes with glorious color. Indeed, each year thousands of visitors time their trips to the desert Southwest to coincide with wildflower season, and in a good year the spectacle can make front-page news. Author Meg Quinn is a recognized authority on plants of the desert Southwest and is in demand as a public speaker.

In Wildflowers of the Desert Southwest, Meg Quinn helps even the most amateur botanist to identify more than eighty-five of the most common and showy species found in the Sonoran Desert. Each species is described in detail and depicted in full-color photographs in their natural habitat. Species are further organized by color for ease of identification. Quinn also includes tips for the best locations to look for specific wildflowers.
