When the desert blooms, it is a sight never to be forgotten. Wildflowers as high as your shins, even to your knees, carpet the desert in an array of magenta, blue, orange, white, and yellow. You can lie back in a field of perfumed vegetation and disappear from view as bees buzz over your nose in their untiring search for nectar and pollen. If your next thought is, "What kind of flowers are these?" you'll find the answer in Flowers of the Southwest Deserts, an exceptionally complete handbook to just about every flower one might come across while visiting America's Southwest deserts. This indispensable guide provides the names, characteristics, ranges, and other important identifying features of the flowering plants you're most likely to encounter-in both wet years and dry years. This book is your essential guide to the blossoming deserts of the Southwest. 136 pages.

This is a great book! don't let the price fool youReview by TLinbo
This series of books is amazing! It's the right mix of information on the plants and what is needed to ID them. The simple color system is easy to get uses to. I wish they sold a E-pub or PDF, this would be a great set of guides to have on a phone. (Posted on 1/2/2020)
