This review is from: A Guide to Wildflowers in Winter: Herbaceous Plants of Northeastern North America (Paperback)
There is not another guide quite like this one. Most botany guides deal with plants when they are either flowering or are in their green leafy states. This guide though deals entirely with overwintering wildflower structures. I was required to get this book by a professor as a class book while in college. Even today I refer back to it when I see something that I can't quite remember what it was. Many of the plants in this guide are important to wildlife during the winter so it's a perfect companion with "American Wildlife and Plants: A Guide To Wildlife Food Habits". If you have ever wanted to groom your yard to be beneficial to overwintering birds. Or you want to plant natives instead of non-natives/invasive then this can give you an idea of what wildflowers might look interesting during the winter and "American Wildlife and Plants" will give you an idea of how beneficial that plant is to the animals.
If you are a botany nut this is a highly recommended book.
