Atlantic Coastal Plain Wildflowers
This field guide includes a discussion of plant communities found in the Coastal Plain and a clearly written description of each species included in the book and the habitats it prefers. It is especially helpful when contrasting field identification characters of similar species.
The book focuses on the Coastal Plain region of Virginia, North and South Carolina, Georgia, and northeast Florida (see map) — an area well known for its unique and diverse flora.
Throughout the book plants are grouped by flower color; in the index you can see them grouped by family.
