Wildflowers of the Mountain Southwest

From Elkslips and Hooded Ladies' Tresses to St. John's Wort and Shooting Star, every summer throughout the American Southwest and northern Mexico, the region's mountain woodlands lay out colorful carpets of wildflowers. Botanist and educator Meg Quinn identifies and describes more than 70 of the most common and showy upland species found in California, Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, Utah, and western Texas. Flowers are organized by color for ease of identification.
