5.0 out of 5 stars easy to use regional wildflower guide May 9 2013
By K L McKay - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I took this book with me on a trip to the Colorado Plateau and carried it with me on all my hikes, referring to it frequently. I was able to identify dozens of flowers that were blooming and had much fun doing so! This book is particularly useful for people who are fairly new to plant ID as it is arranged by color of blooms and the photos are excellent (although I should note that sometimes the colors were not what I would have chosen). Text descriptions of the leaves are helpful. A few less common plants are included in this guide, such as the Canyonlands Biscuitroot, which I appreciated.
