100 Common Wildflowers of the Tallgrass Prairie


At one time, the tallgrass prairie of North America spread from the center of the continent eastward as far as Kentucky—a vast sea of wildflowers and grasses, many as tall as a horse. Today, the extent of the prairie is reduced, but the spectacular plants continue to bring splashes of white, yellow, blue, and purple to preserved and restored prairie throughout their former range. Packed with more than 100 close-up photographs, 100 Common Wildflowers of the Tallgrass Prairie is an indispensable guide to the names, characteristics, approximate bloom times, and traditional uses of the flowering plants you are most likely to encounter in the tallgrass prairies from Canada to Texas and Nebraska to Indiana.
