You can never have too many wildflower identification books. I find that photos in some books don't always show the plant from an angle that shows all the details of leaves and flower. This book does feature full page color photos (about 100 of these) and supplements them with drawings that may show different stages of the plant (berries or a related plant). The arrangement in this book is by plant families and includes descriptions that are useful aids in identification. The authors based the book on field work ranging from New Hampshire to Virginia.

This is a nice little (postcard-sized, about 3/4 inch thick, 14 oz) field guide that conveniently slips into your coat pocket to carry on a hike. This book is clearly geared toward the lay person with little or no background in botany. It looks to be very easy to use as it is organized by flower color, quick and easy to thumb through, with simple overview icons of other plant features such as flower shape and leaf type and attachment. As you open the book for each plant, a full-page nice quality photograph on the left page showing both flower and foliage is complemented by a description on the right page.

This book is far from being a comprehensive field guide though. As you might expect for a book this size, the number of plants covered has to be limited and it contains only a fraction of the variety of wildflowers you may find. The book shows 200 plants, presumably the most common ones, but is missing many of the rare and endangered species. With more than 4000 native plant species in North Carolina, not counting common introduced species, this guide is just scratching the surface of the wildflower diversity this state has to offer. The checklist/index lists common names; there is no index for scientific names.

In conclusion, this is a nice "beginner's field guide" for the botanical lay person looking for an answer to the question: "What plant is that?" Its size makes it handy to carry around. More ambitious hobby botanists may soon realize its limitations though, and for the huge wildflower diversity in the mountains of Western North Carolina an area-specific field guide for the Southern Appalachians might prove more useful.

While the quality of photographs is nice, the book I received had two pages with print defects (resulting in "shadowing" of the print and creases where the paper looks to have been folded). It's not bad enough to make it unusable, and I don't know if print quality issues are common with this book/publisher, but you may want to consider buying this at a book store where you can thumb through it to make sure all pages look ok.

Relocating from the Pacific Northwest to Greensboro brings many challenges, identifying what's growing around our property being one. We have a significant riparian area in need of remediation and this book will be extremely helpful in identifying what to keep, what to eradicate, and what to plant to attract birds and pollinators.

I have other identifier books by the same author and find them extremely helpful and easy to use. Plants are easy to identify and the book is organized in a very clear way. Works great for novices like myself. I definitely recommend this and any other book in this series!

I absolutely love that the book has color pictures on one page and all the info you need to identify the species on the opposite page. Makes identification easy!
