"Field Guide to the Wildflowers of Georgia and Surrounding States is meant to be just that—a book meant to travel, literally, a field guide hikers in Georgia and nearby states can take along on their explorations, and will let them find pretty quickly what that pretty flower is, off the highway, off the Appalachian trail or deep in a south Georgia bog."
—Lee Shearer, Athens Banner-Herald
"Field Guide to the Wildflowers of Georgia and Surrounding States. . . is a friendly invitation to share knowledge you have wished you had every time you’ve wondered at an unknown flower along the roadside or on a walk in the woods."
"Those interested in the wildflowers of the American southeast now have an impressive new field guide. . . to help them with their identifications."
—John E. Riutta, The Well-Read Naturalist
Field Guide to the Wildflowers of Georgia and Surrounding States is the first field guide devoted exclusively to Georgia’s wildflowers, while also including a large number of plants found in neighboring states. Organized in a clear and logical way, Linda G. Chafin’s guide is both scientific and accessible to those who aren’t professional botanists. The guide includes nontechnical species descriptions and comparisons with similar plants, information on the habitats and natural communities that support Georgia’s wildflowers, and suggestions for the best places and times to see wildflowers. The guide includes descriptions of the wildflowers found in forests, woodlands, and wetlands, as well as those growing along roadsides that are often dismissed as “weeds” but may first attract the attention of budding naturalists.
