Woody Plants of the Southeastern US:
A Winter Guide
To the untrained eye, the woods in winter can seem to be no more than a collection of grey lifeless twigs, but “Bare twigs and dormant buds are merely another dimension in the appearance of our woody plants,... often overlooked yet perfectly distinctive if viewed with an eye for detail.”
Over 800 woody plants are described and illustrated.
