As a flower gardener fresh to the South I was looking for more info to support me create intelligent plant choices for the climate. I learned about this book in a native plant seminar and it is a unbelievable 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.
I ordered this book as a trail hiking reference for the different wildflowers that grow here in the foothills section of the Palmetto State. Much to my surprise, it contained more info that I expected, including info similar to the different regions of the state; wildflower Latin names, and outstanding photography. I highly recommend this book.
Being in the Lowcountry of South Carolina, I search this book very useful and simple 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.
This is an indispensable application for Arizona wildflower ID. It is simple to use and does an perfect job of sorting out the ID possibilities, something other apps stumble on. I have found a lot of plant IDs with Steven's application that I could not search by using one of my a lot of printed paper wildflower guides. If you are a wildflower fan, don't miss this perfect app. Be sure to turn on your WiFi connection to this application because it is quite large.
This application is great. I use it for my job all the time so I love that I don't need to be connected to the internet for it to work. I've been recommending it to a lot of people who do veg work. The only thing I want the developers would add is the USDA Plants codes. I know those don't mean much to the average user but I'd be beautiful excited if those were added in a future update.
Quick, easy, thorough, and gorgeous. A wealth of knowledge in your pocket! Customizable decision-tree allows you to narrow possibilities even if you lack characteristics or are uncertain. Unbelievable for beginning botanists like myself. Gorgeous macro images with black backgrounds and multiple angles for simple differentiation of features (Gerald D. Carr is prolific!). A wealth of knowledge in your pocket!
Amazing for the Pacific NW! With the fresh Kit Kat modernize today the program works flawlessly. Additionally, the company (High Country Apps) tried to fix a issue a I was having, on their side, but it was ultimately an android device problem. Perfect customer service.
Amazing Tool for identifying Plants in the wild I typed in my zone and a couple of plant characters like flower color and leaf shape and my find was narrowed from nearly a thousand plants to just a few. Scrolled through the few that were left and voila! I found my plant. The images are stunning. A handy feature is tapping on plant family description brings up all the plants in that family. Can't wait for the next application from the Oregon Flora Project.
I did not expect this book to be so beautiful. It has detailed illustrations of each flower and their varieties as well as info on folklore involving the flowers, medicinal purposes, the regions they grow in, and what they've been used for in the past. A must have book for anyone interested in wild flower species or local knowledge on them.
WONDERFUL application for people interested in plants! Super simple to use, with amazing features, such as keeping track of plants you have identified, and very informative. I live right at the intersection of California, Arizona, and Nevada so I've downloaded the Wildflowers apps for all 3 states and am so happy with how consistent the Wildflowers find results are between the 3 states; it greatly increases the confidence I have in those results. THANK YOU!
Overall, I recommend it. However, a small disappointed that the feedback option in the application doesn't work, also the email that the feedback option points to gives an error. Needs some work. I couldn't search 1 of 3 wildflowers plants I looked for today - Amazing Hedge Nettle. Seems like it's common enough that it should be in there. (Thanks for the reply. I found the Amazing Hedge Nettle, but it was listed in forest instead of wetlands (which I where I found it, and what the habitat is described online. Also the ones I saw were very strongly purple, but it's listed under pink/red. )
Don't really appreciate a "buy it before you test it" format. While having a plant key is nice, being able to upload a image would be great. Tried using the key to identify Queen Anne's Lace and it doesn't present it. Wild Carrot doesn't even present up. Since I for it (and I don't really mind the "donation" so much), I won't be deleting the application soon, but I doubt I'll be using it much for my wild flower ID. I'm mostly just disappointed that the ID process is as lackluster as it is. On a positive note, when a plant is selected, you do provide quite a lot of information about that plant. I also search it interesting that the floral icon you use for the application appears to be an Avalanche Lily which isn't even included in your DB.
I had traveled to Death Valley in mid March 2016 for the Super Bloom. I photographed every flower I cam across, and probably missed a few. Then was time to identify them. I saw this book on Amazon, and thought it the best of all the desert flower books offered, and downloaded it to my Kindle. I believe all but one of the flowers in Death Valley I was able to identify. The book is divided into sections according to colors, each flower is noted to its blooming season, habitat and range. The introduction tells about the Mojave Desert, topography, soils, past and show vegetation, past human use of the various tribes known to the area, early explorers, history. Even what makes the colors of the flowers. Oh, gosh, method too much to tell here. If you're ever going to take a trip to the desert, especially in the spring or fall when these flowers are blooming, you've got to take along this book. The images are in color and top quality, in my opinion. I know what's on my itinerary for a future street trips back to the desert and I won't go without this book.
My husband is a geologist so I spend dozens of hours every year photographing flowers on our hikes in the desert. This is a unbelievable book to support identify what I find... Highly recommend.
Perfect book on Mojave Desert Wildflowers and plants. I use itas my go to reference at my Pinon Hills home. It would have been better is there were images of plants in their habitat and not necessarily up close photos.
This is not only a attractive book, it's also the best that's yet available for identifying Mojave Desert vegetation and wildflowers. The plant descriptions and comments are exceptional and it provides alternative and often confusing local names for a lot of species. If it had included extra images showing the different plants when they're not in bloom, I'd have given it five stars.
This is a amazing book for identifying desert wildflowers. It is one of the most complete books out there. The book is color coded to create flower identification easy. The one downside to this book is the images are low rez. Some of the pictures are very clear but a lot of need to be redone. As you obtain out into the field you will figure out that you need 2 books, images you took your self and the Internet to correctly identify a lot of of the flowers. There are a lot of flowers that look related so you need to look at a lot of various aspects of the plant to correctly identify it. The text is amazing with clear plant details, habitat, as well as bloom seasons. I found this book to be very helpful.
Amazing botanical descriptions but a lot of not good photographs for identification. Not low rez just not good photography.
I bought this before a street trip to the Mojave Desert. It is arranged by colors of the blooms of the flowers. There is also a section on green and brown shrubs. I like the size for traveling but would have found it more useful if it had a spiral binding. The index is amazing and there is a chapter with amazing explanations of plant parts. I was able to use this book to learn more about desert plants and to identify some of the plants I came across.
Fast and simple references to wildflowers commonly seen in the Mojave Desert. Illustrations are organized by flower color which makes them simple for non-botanists to use. Light weight, it is simple to package and carry. Botanist is very knowlegable and her plant lists are backed by vouchered specimens.
I have the printed ver and wanted to have the digital on my iPad. I was really looking at getting a ver that I could use more places. What a total disappointment. The index has page numbers, but there are no page numbers in the body of the book. So you have to scroll through the sections to test and search the flower you are looking for. In addition, the digital photos of the flowers are no where near the quality of the printed version.
This is amazing book! Very simple to follow and read as it is color coded. The info is decent enough for amateur botanist enthusiastic hikers out on the mojave
This is a amazing set of guides. On my first outing carrying them I identified 3 fresh plants I was curious about and also a bunch of birds. Being fresh to the southwest I was not familiar with Flora and fauna but these will support me learn easily while out and about!
I ordered books for our six grandchildren. I did not realize that this was a fold up list of wildflowers and trees. It does not present enough in the examples to identify easily and there is very small info about species. Illustrations are limited and info is limited to visual differences without much description. Little print is not simple to read.
We just moved from our completely remodeled California home to a "fixer-upper" in Georgia and are starting all over again inside and out so I required to know what will grow in this area. The book is attractive and full of unbelievable information. Arrived sooner than expected and wonderfully packaged. Highly recommend product and seller!
This is a amazing book, but I was delivered a copy with a torn cover. So disappointing. Ordering a replacement because the cover is torn is unnecessarily adding to carbon emissions...yet, I did full for a damaged item. Catch 22 and upsetting.
Useful foldout guides, straight and to the point. I would love them even more if they were on waterproof flexible paper instead of the more rigid laminated, but this is probably most durable.
Love this book - my go to for primary flower identification. I live in Northwest Montana and so far I’ve been able to search almost everything I’ve wanted to identify. Simple to use and gives amazing primary info about each species.
This is a must have resource book for beginning to understand and identify Wild flowers...Although it is not the final chapter in identification it sure will obtain you started and is simple to follow and categorize. The photos and corresponding icons flow brilliantly for ease of identification...Fits nicely in the Saddle Bag or field pocket of and explorer jacket and is very durable and colorful...I carry it every time I saddle up in the high country of the Cascades...to the deserts of the northwest...Photographer William J.

This tutorial is simple to use. Flowering plants are grouped by the color of the flower, and within the color, by the form of the flower. Amazing range maps, and amazing description. I would have liked more views of the entire plant, not just the flower. Otherwise perfect for botanizing, which I do full bore in our short spring and summer seasons.
