About This Item: 
An acclaimed, beautifully illustrated introduction to spring-blooming wildflowers of the northeastern United States and CanadaThis exquisitely illustrated volume provides an accessible, in-depth introduction to spring-blooming wildflowers of the northeastern United States and Canada. Featuring more than 500 detailed color photos and a large, beautifully designed format, the book delves into the life histories of more than thirty-five wildflowers and their relatives, from common favorites, such as bloodroot and Jack-in-the-pulpit, to interesting, lesser-known species, including miterwort and featherfoil. Drawing on a wealth of personal experience and the latest scientific research, and presenting it all in terms anyone can understand, acclaimed naturalist and photographer Carol Gracie invites readers to enhance their appreciation of the beauty of these wildflowers by learning not just their names or how many petals they have, but what pollinates them, how their seeds are dispersed, how they interact with other plants and animals, how Native Americans and other people have used them, and other interesting facts.Each species is illustrated with a range of detailed color photos that not only capture its beauty but illustrate the features discussed in the text and show the plant in its environment alongside the pollinators, herbivores, or seed dispersers with which, in many cases, the wildflower has evolved. Other topics covered include the naming of wildflowers, pathogens and pests, related species in other parts of the world, and wildflowers in history, literature, and art.Presenting authoritative information in an inviting style, Spring Wildflowers of the Northeast is an ideal volume for wildflower lovers, outdoor enthusiasts, naturalists, students, and more.Showcases the most spectacular spring-blooming wildflowers of the northeastern United States and CanadaFeatures more than 500 stunning full-color photosCovers the life histories, lore, and uses of more than 35 species and their relativesCombines the latest scientific research with an easy-to-read styleFeatures species accounts for these wildflowers: Baneberries ● Bloodroot ● Blue Cohosh ● Blue-eyed Mary ●Celandines ● Columbine ● Dutchman's Breeches ● Early Meadow-rue ● Early Saxifrage ● False Hellebore ● Featherfoil ● Fire-pink ● Fringed Polygala ● Hepaticas ● Jack-in-the-pulpit ● Lady-slippers ● Lesser Celandine ● Lousewort ● Mayapple ● Miterwort ● One-flowered Cancer-root ● Skunk Cabbage ● Spring Beauties ● Squawroot ● Trilliums ● Trout-lily ● Twinleaf ● Violets ● Virgina Bluebells ● Wild Ginger
