Description


An astounding one quarter of North America's flora can be found in Texas, a biodiverse state with over 5,000 species of plants, including state flower Texas Bluebonnet. Everywhere you go, whether it be the Gulf Coast, wetlands and forests of the east, prairies of the center and north, or Chihuahuan Desert of the west, there are unique plant communities calling for exploration and discovery. For many people, plants represent a major aspect of a landscape's character, so getting acquainted with the most representative species is helpful. A handy resource for doing so is Texas Trees & Wildflowers, a portable reference with beautiful illustrations of 140 common and familiar trees, shrubs, and wildflowers as well as an ecoregion map showing over 20 botanical sanctuaries and learning sites. Laminated for durability, this lightweight, 12-panel folding pocket guide is the ideal companion for educators, learners, naturalists, and botanists who wish to forge deeper and more meaningful connections with the land through its attendant plants. Made in the USA.
