I have for years used Dr. Hall's previous book on Florida wildflower as an authoritative text for helping in identification. It had only line drawings not in color but it was most useful. There are about a dozen texts in my collection of guides to Florida wildflowers and all are useful in their way. I also have a number of taxonomic books on botanic identification such as Wunderlin's excellent keys but there's no color pictures, alas). When I lead Flower Walks for interested parties at several nature preserves in Florida I try to bring along several of these if there is a volunteer to carry them. In the future I'll have to work hard to solicit a volunteer to carry this great (!) book. But it is well worth it. Highly recomended!
I do a lot of hiking in all regions of Florida and the southeast. I also love photography and photograph nature which includes lots of wildflowers, since I love gardening. I have found most of my photographed wildflowers in this book and can now identify the wildflower I photographed. It is a really big book with tons of pages and you can't carry it with you while out hiking, but I snap my photos and later can look them up in the book.
I love how it is sectioned by the coloring of the flowers, although I might feel a blue is purple, but eventually I find my wildflower. I've only come across a very few that I wasn't able to find, but hey you can't know every flower out there. I keep this book in my camper most the time so when I get back from a hike and can look up my flower right then and there. No Internet when I'm out hiking.
I'm very glad I found this book, it has been very useful to me. If you love wildflowers, you'll want this book.
