A stunning pictorial guide to the wildflowers of Maritime Canada.
For anyone who has ever driven a Maritime highway and marveled at the cover of wildflowers along an embankment, or happened on a meadow filled with flowers, this book will provide hours of happy discovery.
In this wildflower collection, photographer Mary Primrose offers up a vivid display of nature at its finest. For many years, she explored Maritime woodlands, shores and meadows, intent on discovering the first blooms of spring that bid farewell to winter. Among the many common and rare plants featured are Jack-in-the-pulpit (Arisaema stewardsonii), Dutchman's Breeches (Dicentra cucullaria) and Sea-lavender (Limonium carolinianum).
The accompanying text by Marian Munro provides details to help identify and locate each plant featured in the collection.
"...filled with glorious photos as well as informative and entertaining text to accompany each plant's photograph."
