Admired by plant enthusiasts, botanists, and nature lovers of all ages, wildflowers comprise one of the most beloved―and diverse―groupings of flora in South Carolina. Although relatively small in size, the Palmetto State hosts a remarkable variety of wildflower species, from the trillium and bloodroot that brighten its forests to heliotrope and common toadflax that dot the state's roadsides and fields. With color photographs (all by Richard D. Porcher) and extensive descriptions of more than 680 species, A Guide to the Wildflowers of South Carolina offers a complete and indispensable reference for finding and appreciating these natural treasures.

There is a photograph error in this edition. I have the first edition. All I did was copy the correct flower from the first edition and glue it over the error. I do wonder why someone did nit "catch" this!
I ordered this book as a trail hiking reference for the various wildflowers that grow here in the foothills section of the Palmetto State. Much to my surprise, it contained more information that I expected, including information related to the various regions of the state; wildflower Latin names, and outstanding photography. I highly recommend this book.
Being in the Lowcountry of South Carolina, I find this book very useful and easy to use. I am really glad to have it. I use to determine what kinds of weeds, wildflowers and trees I have. It also helps me determine what the DNR and DHEC might consider marsh and wetlands.
As a flower gardener new to the South I was looking for more information to help me make smart plant choices for the climate. I learned about this book in a native plant seminar and it is a wonderful reference as it teaches not only about the plants but the native communities where they florish in nature. This is helpful as I attempt to be conscious of my water usage and to do my "green" duty as a homeowner and gardener.
really good
Beautiful book, well-written with great photographs.
Great book with nice information. I would rather have the images throughout the book right with the information, but that's just a personal preference. Images are good. Would recommend.
Great resource.
