Flowers of the Southwest Deserts


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.
