Texas is famous for its bluebonnets, and they are a sight to see in the spring!

18 of 19 people found the following review helpful By Shannon D. Moore on December 1, 2002
Format: Paperback
I received a copy of "Texas Wildflowers" when I was in middle school, in preparation for a class assignment to collect, identify and preserve a variety of Texas wildflowers. I have held on to my copy for the past 18 years, and it's still the best book for identifying Texas wildlflowers! The photos are superb, and the location and identifying information for each flower is informative and interesting.
My only complaint is the book isn't bound in a weatherproof binding so I can bring it along on my annual wildflower photography visits to Texas locales such as Lyndon B. Johnson State Historical Park; McKinney Falls State Park; Inks Lake State Park and Burnet, Texas.

This book has good coverage, small pictures next to the text, and reasonable descriptions. However it is arranged by scientific name so it will not be easy to use this to find the name of that pretty little yellow flower by the roadside. Look at "Wildflowers of Texas" by Geyata Ajilvsgi for a similar field guide but that is grouped by flower colors.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Virginia Allain on April 9, 2007
Format: Paperback
This guide helps Texans (and visitors to Texas) to identify the common and rare flowers seen along the roadsides and in the pastures, fields, and forests of the state. Also included among the pages are 381 full-color, close up photos and 370 species including a description of its appearance, range, habitat, and blooming season.

Texas is famous for its bluebonnets, and they are a sight to see in the spring! This book shows how many more lovely flowers decorate the state. My favorite is seeing red indian paint accenting a swath of bluebonnets. Stunning.

Get this book to learn the names of all the flowers.

The biggest problem with this field guide is it's organization and it is much harder to use than the color coded Wildflowers of Texas. The photographs are not as good either.

This a very handy book to have for local and 'come from away' naturalists. It covers enough of the wild flora to give you and idea of what to expect, the months to expect the plants to bloom and the areas of Texas you can expect to find these plants. The coloured map of the vegetational areas is useful and I especialy appreciated the Glossary and the Illustrated Glossary. There is an area in the back of the book with space for field notes. A great resource to take in the field with you.

I am soon going to Aransas, Texas to attend the Whooping Crane Festival. As an amatuer botanist, I hope to see some native plants!
This book has given me vital information on plant families that would be new to me. And thereby I hope to locate new plants! The book gives significant info on seasons of bloom and fruiting. A great help in my constant quest for plants, animals and birds.

If you are a biologist you might like this book. If you live in Texas and just want to look up a flower and find it - save your money. In the index you won't find Bluebonnet listed as such - you find it listed as Big Bend Bluebonnet. Primrose is not listed as such - you have to know it is a Showing Primrose. Wasted my money on this thing.
