The interest in the flora Newfoundland and Labrador is on the rise, with tourist flocking to the province’s shores to experience the unique beauty and natural wonders the region has to offer.? On the whole, guides to the flora of Newfoundland and Labrador have been rather limited.? Wildflowers of Fogo and Change Islands will change that.? The book introduces readers to the wide variety of mostly native plants found on Fogo and Change Islands.? However, the title could encompass all of eastern Newfoundland, as the plants described in this book are also the standard plants found in areas of Newfoundland west of Deer Lake.? The main plants not covered in this guide are those primarily restricted to limestone regions of Newfoundland, which includes parts of the west coast as well as the Great Northern Peninsula.

Describing nearly 200 species of plants, primarily the natives with a few of the more common roadside or lawn ‘weeds’ of European origin. The guide provides the common name of the plant as well as local Newfoundland and Labrador common names. Beautifully illustrated with more than 200 spectacular photographs this book offers vistors to Fogo Island a beautiful keepsake, as well as a practical reference for those interested in exploring the islands natural wonders.
