    Summary: 
    With more than 175,000 copies sold, Texas Wildflowers has established itself as the go-to guide for identifying the state's roadside flowers. This new edition has been completely reorganized by flower colors (and within each color section, by flowering season) to make it even easier to identify the flowers you see as you travel through Texas. Every wildflower is illustrated with a beautiful full-color photograph--over 250 of which are new to this edition. All of the descriptive identifying information is presented in a consistent format--common and botanical names, plant and leaves, flowers and fruit, flowering season, habitat and range, and notes. What hasn't changed is the book's sturdy binding, which will hold up through years of active use, and its wealth of information, which has been thoroughly updated by the expert staff of the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center: 300 species descriptions, including engaging comments about the plants' natural histories, landscape uses, edible or medicinal properties, and folklore A map of Texas's vegetational areas Glossaries that define and illustrate botanical terms A bibliography of books for learning more about wildflowers Indexes to common and botanical plant names, as well as plant families, that distinguish between native and non-native species As Lady Bird Johnson observed in the foreword, Texas Wildflowers "makes me want to reach for my sunhat, put on my walking shoes, take this knowledge-filled book, and fare forth to seek and discover!"
