ONTARIO WILDFLOWERS features the common native and naturalized wildflowers that beautify meadows, trails, roadsides, orchards and other wayside areas in the province.
Flowers are organized into five broad groups: two-side flowers, tiny stalkless flowers in compact clusters, tiny stalked flowers in branched clusters, circular flowers with distinct petals and circular flowers with fused petals.
Each account features clear and detailed descriptions, including blooming times. You'll find over 200 vivid colour photographs showing whole plant and flower detail. The accounts include notes of interest on edibility, medicinal uses and poisonous plants. The book also includes important guidelines indicating whether flowers can be picked.
You'll also find tips for easy identification and an illustrated key and glossary.
