Description


Rich in plant diversity with over 3,000 species of vascular plants, Washington state is a great place to observe and learn about flora. The towering Western Hemlock is the state tree of the aptly named Evergreen State, which is largely covered in coniferous forests, from the Pacific coast where Sitka Spruces abound to the Cascade Mountains where Western Hemlocks grow in high, dry sites. Pacific Rhododendron is the state flower, dazzling with its pink blooms. Plants represent a major aspect of a landscape's character, so it is helpful to get acquainted with the most representative species. You can readily do this with the portable reference Washington State Trees & Wildflowers, which is beautifully illustrated with 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 perfect companion for educators, learners, naturalists, and botanists who wish to forge deeper and more meaningful connections with the land through its plants. Made in the USA.
