Description

Wildflowers

Bringing the world of North American wildflowers to your fingertips, FANDEX presents a field guide that's as beautiful, practical and intriguing as the flowers themselves. Die-cut images are sharp, the colors true, shapes life-like—identification is guaranteed. Plus a quick chart of vital stats includes family name, life cycle, range, and habitat. Accompanying entries cover the history and cultural significance of each plant—Columbine's use as a love charm, the wars fought over Wild Hyacinth, the medicinal power of White Sage—and detail its use in the home garden.

  • 50 DIE-CUT CARDS
  • FULL COLOR THROUGHOUT
  • KNOWLEDGE AT YOUR FINGERTIPS
  • FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY
